Hank Ives Memorial Fund

One of our founding members, Hank Ives, died last week after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Hank was a devoted husband to Pat, father, served in his church and enjoyed a good game of chess. He had a good sense of humor and a thankful disposition.

Hank’s playing style was thoughtful. He loved the game and was in no hurry to make moves. He wasn’t able to make chess club the last several months of his life. He will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

In honor of his memory, Hank’s family made a generous donation to the SWLR Chess Club to establish the Hank Ives Memorial Fund. This fund will be used to help youth in central Arkansas with USCF memberships. If you would like to donate to the SWLR Chess Club in our mission to better the Southwest Little Rock Community through chess, please click here. All gifts are tax-deductible.
