Dr. Reece Youth Sports Memorial Donation

52484056_1605306965163478_r.jpegRichard William Reece, MD of Durham, NH has passed away after a long illness.

Dr. Reece, known as Dick by family and friends, contributed his energy, determination, and hard work to the Seacoast community through youth athletics. While he served as a founder and administrator of multiple local, regional, and statewide soccer and hockey leagues, his greatest passion was coaching, including many soccer and ice hockey teams in the Oyster River Youth Association over the course of several decades.

Dr. Reece carried a strong belief in the power of youth sports to contribute to the constructive development of character, teamwork, and friendships. He took great pride both in building successful championship teams and in guiding the development of players, many of whom went on to play at the collegiate level for D1 and D3 colleges. Many will recall the cry, “Bangoo!” from the sidelines on the soccer field.

In lieu of flowers and gifts, in honor of his memory and hope for the future, the family asks that well-wishers consider a donation in Dr. Reece’s name to support youth soccer and hockey programs.
