I just learned of John’s passing.
I was supposed to have lunch with him as soon as the pandemic was over. He was a good friend. RIP

Dear Margaret, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. It was only a few Fridays ago that i had the pleasure to play tennis with John at Reis Park, thanks to Monique, the glue that keeps us together. I thoroughly enjoyed playing as his doubles partner. John was always a gentleman on and off the court. He would be greatly missed.
