John passed away in August 2005 after a long battle with cancer.

John joined Yarra Yarra in 1982 as a veteran rower and served on the club’s committee during the mid-1980’s. He was also a sponsor of our annual regatta.

John was an enthusiastic Yachtsman. At the outbreak of World War 2 John joined the RAAF. The RAAF noting John’s yachting experience commissioned John to serve in their Maritime Transport Division.
