“The City of Needles is saddened to hear of the loss of Fidel Connacher. Fidel was a valuable member of the Rivers Edge Golf Course family. Fidel was the first person to assist golf patrons with their bags and carts. He welcomed them with his broad smile and engaging personality. He brightened every room he entered. He will be missed as a friend and colleague. Fidel was a success story; beginning as an intern, progressing to part-time work, and was scheduled to begin this upcoming month in a full time position assisting in the management of the pro shop. He was being trained and groomed to eventually assume golf shop operations and outside services at Rivers Edge. We all share in his loss and extend our prayers and heartfelt condolences to his family. Rick Daniels“.
