Remembering 'Doc' Doctorow

ANNUAL MEETING REMEMBRANCE: Claudia "CC" Cinelli, left, and Flo Janovsky of the Long Island USBC pay tribute to the late A.S. "Doc" Doctorow during the Memorial Service segment of the NYS USBC 7th Annual Meeting on Saturday (June 2, 2018) in Albany. At right is Corinthia Ward, chaplain for the NYS USBC. "Doc" was a longtime youth tournament regional manager and state and local association director. He passed away in March of this year.


The New York State USBC is an arm of the United States Bowling Congress committed to running fair, successful tournaments for bowlers of all ages; an organization dedicated to promoting the great sport of bowling through Hall of Fame and other special award presentations; a source of information to all bowlers interested in improving their game through coaching and instruction, and a vehicle for our young people to combine their scholastic and bowling abilities to receive college scholarships.

Just as importantly, the New York State USBC is run by regular people who appreciate and recognize those special people -- our bowlers -- who have made an impact by participating in leagues and tournaments, and by supporting their families and friends in the sport, throughout their lives. With that being said, we have created this Memorials page on our website as a final tribute to the men and women who have built and helped sustain organized bowling in New York State.

We invite you to send the names of deceased bowlers, relatives of bowlers and friends of the bowling community for inclusion on this page. Please send information to Mike Pettinella, Association Manager, NYS USBC, 55 Edgewood Drive, Batavia, NY 14020, or by email at We also will be acknowledging our deceased members and family/friends during a Memorial Service at the NYS USBC Annual Meeting. Thank you.
