MEMBER NEWS!

Dear Corvette Family
 

I'm saddened to report that our long time friend and club member Wayne Hinrichsen passed away on Tuesday in Las Vegas. Wayne joined our club on April 8, 2017.  His CB handle "Sunshadow" complimented his beautiful C7 Long Beach Red Grand Sport which he loved driving.

Wayne was born in Bettendorf Iowa, and when he was 13 his family moved to La Mesa in Southern California. A graduate of Grossmont High School, Wayne had the honor of playing a saxophone in the Rose Bowl Parade in his senior year.  He received his bachelors degree from Long Beach State University, and worked with the Engineering team at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego for many years.  Wayne married his first wife and adopted her three (3) children that he treated as his own.  They built a home on the Colorado River and also had two dogs and a cat.
 

Wayne retired from Northrop Grumman and soon took advantage of his time to enjoy off roading where he belonged to several off-road clubs, boating on the Colorado River, and of course driving his Corvette. 

Following the passing of his wife, Wayne eventually met Suzanne Glennon, a Corvette member whom he married in 2020. They loved traveling, cruising, off-roading and of course the Corvette club and all of its members.
 

Wayne and his lovely wife Suzanne became very active in our club and especially enjoyed road trips.  They were recognized as Roadrunner Mileage Leaders for several years, an award given for most miles traveled. Wayne also served as a Mid-Captain and Tailgunner with wife Suzanne on many of our runs.
 

One of my fondest memories of Wayne, and there were many, came on one of his first Corvette club road trips to Lake Tahoe, Mammoth and the Eastern Sierras.  Not knowing that we eat "three squares a day" plus snacks, we stopped in at Tom's Place off Hwy 395 south of Mammoth for a break.  Well the break became another "sit down snack fest" at which time Wayne turned to me and said "OMG we're eating again?"  I'm not sure, but I think when it was all said and done,  he put on about 10 pounds, along with the rest of us on that 12 day trip.


Wayne is survived by his wife Suzanne who was by his side, and his three children.  He was a dear friend to many of us with his great sense of humor, quick whit, his love of life, and always enjoying a good laugh.
 

He will be sorely missed.

Anita Reese
The President's Award 

A member since 2015, she has taken on many roles for this club and has volunteered her time on many committees.  Helpful in so may ways, it's hard to "not appreciate" or "take notice of her impact", and her many contributions to this club iin the short time she has been a member.  Because of her strong leadership, commitment, support and unselfish dedication to the Colorado River
Corvette Club, it is my pleasure to present this year’s President’s Award to one of this clubs most
“valued members" and a true friend…
