    Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to Kristy, Jamie, Sofia, Elle, Melody, Glen, Abbey and Thomas on the sad passing of your father, father-in-law and poppy. Our fondest memories of John was when we had catch ups, a drink, discussions, debates and friendly banter were always on the agenda. What a way to go doing the thing he loved. Free kick, play on, no prior. Blow the whistle, the games over.

    John was a great supporter of our association, volunteering his times as a goal umpire during finals and helping where and when he could. Rest in Peace John.
