Richard “Rick” Rice Stimets, Jr., 53, a longtime friend of the Ouimet Fund, died peacefully March 16, 2013 while skiing in Vermont with friends. Born in Cape Cod Hospital on May 24, 1959, living in Worcester he spent every summer in Osterville with his family and friends. He was passionate about golf, boating, and the number 5, and was the happiest when he was on the water surrounded by loved ones.
Rick was a Ouimet Society Lifetime Member, long-time Ouimet Chair at Oyster Harbors, and the son of the late Dick Stimets who was the Ouimet Fund President from 1994-1996. The Stimets family has always been proud of the Dick Stimets endowed scholarship which they set up with the Ouimet Fund in 2003, to which they have directed memorial donations. Rick and his mom Virginia (Ginny) had been great friends of the Ouimet Fund and regular attendees at our events.
His sense of humor and zest for life will always be remembered.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Stimets family.
