Dear Fellow Club Members,
John Deeley, our immediate past Chairman, died this morning.
Thank you to Caro McFarlan for passing on the news. Caro will also let us know funeral arrangements as soon as they are determined.
As Caro put it: ‘Some of you may already know but Joyce has asked me to let you know the sad, but not unexpected, news that John died this morning … A well fought innings to the end, methinks’.
I add a couple of photos of John below, at the President’s Day this year and playing on President’s Day in 2014.
The President, the current Chairman, John’s predecessor as Chairman and other longstanding members of the Club will have the opportunity in due course to reflect on John’s outstanding service and spirit, and I will be emailing members on other matters tomorrow, but we just wanted to make sure that those not in the immediate vicinity would hear this news from us today.
May John rest in peace.
With best wishes to his family and friends,
