    Much to my regret, I just found out about the passing of Dal Joon Lee. He lost his 2 year battle with Bile Duct Cancer back in Sept. He was 72. He was a 4 time US National Champion. He was one of the most dominant US player of his time. Back in the 60’s and 70’s he dominated most all of the players in the US. I met Dal Joon Lee way back in 1962 when I just got out of the Air Force and was still living in Spokane WA. He was traveling with the Harlem Globetrotters for the half time Table Tennis exhibition of years past. We somehow got him to accept an invitation to come to our local club where we would play at the local YMCA. As some of you old timers might remember, the loop drive was quite new at the time. We up there in Spokane couldn’t even visualize what the stroke looked like, let alone execute it. Well Dal Joon agreed to hit with some of us. We found out soon enough how impressive and dominant that stroke was. We later took him to dinner and we stayed friends for the rest of our days even though it was mostly from a distance. We would get reacquainted every time we went to Vegas where Dal Joon eventually moved to. In 1967 when San Diego Hosted the US Open Dal Joon upset Takahashi in the semi’s. One of the top 2 players Japan had to offer. He eventually lost to Fukashima in the finals. That was no small feat in those days. The top Korean player was there, Billy Bergstrand from Sweden was there, as well as the best the USA had to offer. Dal Joon Lee was not only a great table tennis player, but a class individual. He will be sorely missed.
