Heard some sad news that Coach Robert McCarthy passed away last Friday. I was wondering if there is anyone closer to him that can give me some info on his services. I would like to attend.
Thanks
Coach Perez

Bob lived four doors down from me. He was one of the most kind and welcoming coaches as we were getting started at High Tech High. I will miss seeing his old car slow in front of my house on his way to summer workouts and I will miss him running around the neighborhood asking me if my legs still worked. He was a funny guy.

My wife and I will also never forget the day he found out I was a coach. He came up to both of us in the front yard and said, "Coaching is one of the greatest jobs in the world, but trust me being a husband and a dad are more important. Don't ever forget it."

I found a link to his obituary here:

Service details:
Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 9:30am until time of 10:30 service at La Jolla Methodist Church, 6063 La Jolla Blvd.

Will be present at his service, we will also honor coach McCarthy at the Inaugural Jim Cerveny Invite as we will name the 4x4 races after him.
