Dear Cal South Family,
It is with a sad and heavy heart that we inform the Southern California soccer community that late Monday afternoon, Cal South Board member, District Five Commissioner and LA County Fire Department Captain Richard "Rick" McCown, was killed in an automobile accident. His wife Lorrie was hospitalized, but is recovering from her injuries.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, October 29 from 11:00-noon at Harvest Christian Fellowship Church at 6115 Arlington Avenue in Riverside. He will be laid to rest at a private ceremony.
The LA County Fire Department will conduct an official flag ceremony on Sunday, October 28 at 10:00 a.m. at Fire Station 80 in Acton, California.
Cpt. McCown is survived by Lorrie, his wife of 32 years, and their two children, Noelle and Neal, as well as his father Don and two sisters, Mary and Vicky.
Please join us in keeping Rick's family in your thoughts and prayers.
