Royal Pines has lost a wonderful friend and neighbor, John Hines, who passed away on July 8. 2013. John was often found in his seat at Lady’s Island Country Club when he wasn’t playing golf or volunteering. John served on the Board of Directors of Royal Pines Homeowners and was active in the Beaufort community. He and his wife Kay have been married for 52 loving years. An e-mail from John was always signed…Cheers! Well, Cheers to you John Hines, you were a good guy!
Col. Bob and Annette Rauenhorst will be leaving Royal Pines when they move to North Carolina to begin new phases of their lives. Bob will begin a new assignment with the Marines and they both will be “empty nesters” for the first time. The three Rauenhorst girls, Sarah, Megan and Whitney will all be away at college this fall, two at Clemson and one at USC in Columbia. Annette served on the Board of Directors of Royal Pines Homeowners and for many of those years, with John Hines. Some members of the 2009 Board of Directors for Royal Pines got together for dinner to say a farewell to Annette and Bob. They may return to Beaufort one day – they loved their time here. …..and we hope they do!
