TROY KENDRICK 
ORANGE COUNTY USBC 
HALL OF FAME 

by Joy McGregor 

In a ceremony held Saturday, August 25 at La Habra “300” Bowl and attended by family and friends, TROY KENDRICK was officially inducted into the Orange County Hall of Fame for Superior Performance. We had seven past Hall of Famers in attendance: Butch Maxwell, Libby Buckley, Helen Petrowski, Joy McGregor, Rose Williams, Shirley Anderson and Terry Brent. 

Bits and pieces of Troy’s life — “This is your life” was encapsulated into a presentation by OCUSBC Hall of Fame chair, Joy McGregor and read by OCUSBC president, Gary Forman.

Troy “hung” himself on our prestigious wall and was asked to say a few words. It was then that it finally sunk in and he became emotional, thanking his parents who were in attendance for this honor, stating how humble and honored he felt for this recognition. It brought a tear to the eyes of not only Troy. Troy received a lovely piece of engraved crystal from Orange County and a certificate from USBC depicting his induction. After the festivities, everyone was invited to cake and punch.

Webster’s dictionary defines a Hall of Fame inductee … “As an individual acclaimed as outstanding in a particular profession or activity.” Troy Kendrick embodies this characterization, having grown up on the “alleys” of Orange County and serving as an ambassador for the sport of bowling for more than 40 years.

Thank you to all board members and to everyone who took the time to come honor Troy. Thank you also to our host, La Habra “300” Bowl for the venue and for being the Orange County Hall of Fame home. The punch was delicious and the wall looks impressive.

Troy is well deserved of this honor and he makes the 83rd recipient. The wall can hold more so be on the lookout for the next Hall of Famer…he/she just might very well be your teammate.

CONGRATS TROY!! 

FYI: Don’t rush down to La Habra to view Troy’s picture as it has been taken for re-matting but our association manager, Andrea Fredericks promises it will be back in its rightful spot tout de suite!!
