May He Rest In Peace

Received the following from Volunteer Dave regarding Clay Triolo (aka Flipper) in an email.

Just got a call from Donna, and she said that Clay was hit on his bike in Indio area and killed. No way to contact his sister or to find someone to claim the body.


Update: It happened in Cathedral City on Ramon Road in between Crossley Road and Landau Boulevard. It was a hit and run. Officers say they believe the suspect is driving a green Jeep Cherokee with damage to the passenger side.

    Larry, Very, very sad news to hear about Clay. He was definitely a forever part of the LPGA family of caddies. I can only speak of my relationship with Clay. He would have done anything for anybody and was a very hard worker. Rest in Peace, Clay, you always meant well and deserved a better fate.

    So sorry to hear of this sad news of Clay passing. I got to know him a little bit more during the time I gave him a ride from Palm Springs to Phoenix. It gave me a better insight of Clay, and what you saw on the outside was not what he was on the inside.

    Rest in Peace Clay. My condolences to his family.

    A Character Disney could never imagine!
    As annoying as he could be, it was true that he would do anything for you if you asked. Old school caddy, and someone that added plenty of spice to the everyday life of the LPGA. (He hooked me up with a T.V. Gig for the Ryder Cup in Rochester back in the day, which allowed me to get a week clubhouse pass for my dad.)
    I spoke/listened to him at Dinah this year, like most years.
    Stayed with him at the “Murder Inn” or Saw Mill River Inn for the Memeroneck event. Where the glass at the front desk had to be about 6 inches thick!
    When he was around It was never dull! Anyone remember his car being repossessed in Davidson? Or Him winning with Laurel Keane? And the amazing Burger King rant before the HAWAII Flight? All Classic tales.
    Travel Well!
