Rabain a man who always saw the light
Wanda and I would like to extend our warmest sympathies to the family of Bermuda’s lifetime ambassador of golf, Frankie Rabain.
Frankie had what I call a natural smile. His first reaction to a person was a wide, bright smile that let you know that you had met a man who loved people.
When we were planning the first PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda, I did not hesitate for one second to ask his opinion on various aspects of the event. In fact, he used to wink at me when I saw him before the tournament was moved from Mid Ocean Club to Port Royal.
He said he knew two things: one was that the event would move to Port Royal and the other was that I was hoping to get Tiger Woods to play in a future tournament. Of course, the latter didn’t happen but Frankie knew exactly why we wanted Bermuda to host Tiger Woods.
I will always remember him as a positive person who always saw light where others saw darkness, who wanted the best for his country.
May his soul rest in peace.
