Rich Martin


Dear Golfer,

Thank you for participating in Immanuel Palatine’s Bobcat Scramble in memory of Richard Martin.

My name is Sofie (Martin) Dzik, director of marketing and admissions, alumna, Immanuel Lutheran Church member, and proud daughter of the late Richard Martin. My father was a steadfast man of faith committed to sharing the mercy and compassion of Jesus with friends, relatives, and strangers. He served in many leadership capacities during his longstanding membership at Immanuel and had a heart for the school. Richard was dedicated to continuing Lutheran education at Immanuel Palatine. One of my favorite positions in which he served was as a basketball coach to our Lady Bobcat State and National championship team in 2005. My father’s presence has been sorely missed since he passed in 2020. I pray this event honors his legacy and gives glory to God.

Richard was very supportive of Christian education and he would be pleased to know that the proceeds of the Golf Scramble will go directly to Immanuel Lutheran School.

Thank you, from my family to yours, for coming out to enjoy this day the Lord has made!

God is good!

Sofie Dzik
