[SIZE=4]In Memoriam
[/SIZE] [I]Ralph Frisbee
WANADA Publications and Marketing Director[/I]

WANADA is sad to report that its stalwart publications and marketing chief, Ralph Frisbee passed away on Sunday from complications of cancer. He was 69. Sadly, too, Ralph was the beloved husband of Trish Frisbee, WANADAês office manager and Board liaison of long standing.

Ralph had come over to WANADA after an extended and distinguished career in marketing and advertising operations at Metro, going back to the glorious, but tumultuous years of the launching of the long awaited subway system here in the mid-1970s.

A benefit added of Ralphês eminently successful oversight of WANADAês publications, and the marketing and administration of ADEIês career programming, was the annual WANADA Open, which he took under his wing and brought to new heights per his love of golf.

Arrangements are set for this Friday, July 25, at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 11701 Clopper Road, Gaithersburg, MD 20878-1024. Visitation with the family is 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm, with a memorial service from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm. A reception will follow at the Kentlands Mansion, 320 Kent Square Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878, at 3:15 pm.

The funeral is through DeVol of Gaithersburg, (301) 948-6800. Contributions in lieu of flowers can go to Montgomery Hospice, 1355 Piccard Drive, Suite 100, Rockville, MD 20850.

To Trish, her sons Mark and Danny, her extended family and many friends, WANADA offers its sincerest sympathy.
