In Memory of IM Dr. Danny Kopec
The Greenville Chess Club sadly marks the passing of friend IM Dr. Danny Kopec, who left us too soon on Sunday, June 12, 2016. Dr. Kopec competed in four South Carolina tournaments between 2010 and 2013, and visited the various state clubs with engaging lectures and simultaneous challenges to benefit scholastic chess. These included two visits to the Greenville Chess Club in May 2012 and August 2013. We miss his gentle humor, cheerful nature, and warm enthusiasm in bringing chess to anyone who wanted to learn, and we extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Kopec's family.
