ELKHART LAKE, Wis., - George Bovis, a profound businessman, SCCA member, and long-standing Road America Board Member, passed away on April 12.
"Everyone is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of George Bovis, he was family to us, and a member of a kinship amongst SCCA members throughout the midwest," said Road America President and General Manager, Mike Kertscher. "To say he played an integral role in our success - beginning as a volunteer with the Chicago Region SCCA, to his position on the Board of Directors - would be an understatement. He was a passionate and valued leader, and more importantly, he possessed a graciousness and character that everyone enjoyed being around. His presence will be missed but never forgotten at Road America. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Road America and our extended family of partners and friends are with the Bovis family in this difficult time."
Funeral arrangements are pending and additional information will be made available at a later date.
