Guest Book Highlights

October 26, 2013 "The Davison Family sends their deepest regrets and condolences to the Kazmaier Family. My father, Jack Davison (Princeton Class of 1951), played football with Dick often as his offensive blocker (we Davison kids grew up learning and running those plays in the backyard). I've included a photo from the 1950 Princeton-Yale Game of Kaz (#42) and my father (#34). We grew up hearing incredible stories about the undefeated Princeton teams of 1950 and 1951 and about the amazing "Kaz." Jack Davison admired Richard Kazmaier not only for his athletic ability, but mostly for his integrity and kindness. May all of your memories be blessed and your hearts warmed knowing how Dick touched the lives of so many. Sincerely, Sarah Davison, on behalf of Jack and Diana Davison (Jack passed on April 22, 2013)." - Sarah Davison (Woodbridge, CT)

August 08, 2013 "Aloha.
We are sending our sincere condolences to the family. Through the many years we met with Dick at many sporting goods ventures, at trade shows, World Federation of the Sporting Goods industry gatherings, the SGMA, at the ISPO in Munich, at sports meetings and sometimes in Hawaii and we cherish the many occasions where we exchanged thoughts and ideas. He was a great man.
May God bless the family.
Fred & Renee" - Fred & Renee Lulof (Maui, HI)
