I found out yesterday that John Phesse had sadly passed away last week. I knew John for a number of years since first meeting him on a basketball court during a tiffs sports afternoon at Daedalus, unfortunately I was on the other side and John beat us single handedly. I was then fortunate enough to serve with John on a number of occasions and a nicer guy you could not hope to meet. John had been bravely battling a serious illness for a long time, and will be sadly missed by his friends and colleagues. My thoughts and sincere condolences go to his wife and children. RIP John, you were a true gentleman and I am glad to say that I knew you.
