Florida Water Ski Federation 2010 Hall of Fame inductee Jim Cleveland of Hawthorne FL passed away yesterday. (Jim’s HOF bio is in the Hall of Fame section of the website)
Jim was one of the founding members of the new FWSF in 1976 and has been a strong advocate for Florida water skiers for many years. He was also the Executive Vice President of the AWSA Southern Region in 1973-74 and a member of the AWSA Skiers Rating committee for many years.
He is survived by his wife and he was her faithful coach and companion, since they started skiing in 1965 on the Ohio river in Portsmouth Ohio.
Our sincerest condolences to Barbara.
