  • Our condolences and sad to hear of JJ’s passing. Enjoyed many a great day on the golf course with JJ. He was a kindhearted person and fun to be around. His pregame rituals and “mouthwash “ before tournaments are just some of the fond memories he will have left us. Thanks JJ it was fun.

  • So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a wonderful and kind man who I loved seeing at the old Southwood. I will always remember the french fries he bought for everyone and for the milkshakes he always bought for our son. I enjoyed playing golf with John too, although our swings didn't always line up for good alternate shot partner golf. God be with you, John. Condolences to the family. - Posted by: Trish Jordan (Southwood GC friend) on: Mar 13, 2021
