To the family, so sorry to hear of John’s passing. And sorry we found out too late to attend his service. We truly enjoyed knowing John for many years as a member at Melody Hill Country Club. He was such a true gentleman, and a pleasure to know. He had his physical limitations but still managed to play his game of golf and you had to admire that about John. Lucille and John together at last. RIP, from all of us at Melody Hill, Sincerely, Dianne & Ed Delfino, Katie Closson, Jillian Carella-Delfino and Marion Mandeville.
