Kovach passed away at 73 on June 28 after a battle with cancer. After graduating from the Virginia Military Institute, Kovach received his DDS degree from Virginia Commonwealth. He served two years in the United States Air Force, where he received the Air Force Commen- dation Medal. Upon his return, he began a dental practice in Bluefield, Va., in 1971, which continued until June 2015. During his career, he was inducted as a fellow of the Virginia State Dental Society. In addition to his time as a VSGA board member, Kovach was on the original selection committee for the Virginia Golf Hall of Fame, he served terms of the Blue- field Town Council and Bluefield Planning Commission, and he was a member of the Tazewell County School Board. “Dave didn’t say much, but when he did say something, everybody in the room paid attention,” said Bill Millsaps, who served with Kovach on both the VSGA board and the Hall of Fame selection com- mittee. “He was a wonderful man. I loved listening to his mountain twang, inasmuch as I have one of my own.” Kovach is survived by his wife Charlynne; brother W. Michael Kovach; son Dr. David A. Kovach II; and daughters Cheryl Gam- ble and Ann Marie Whaley. vsga.org a. When Player A’s caddie marks and lifts the ball on the putting green with authorization from the player. b.
