Vale John Gavin

19 September 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend, John Gavin.

This morning this tough man lost a brave two-year battle with illness and passed away at home surrounded by family.

John has been a passionate and loyal supporter of both the junior and senior clubs since his son Matthew began playing for 'Bernards in the U9s.  A terrific club man and past junior coach; a character with a great laugh and sense of humour; an all-round nice guy and friend who is gone much too soon.

John coached our U14C's to the finals last year; his wife Kerry has been the trainer for their son Matthew's teams over the years and Matthew, apart from being a strong player for the U16D's, also runs water for the Seniors on Saturdays.

Clearly loved by all who were fortunate enough to know him, Johnny Gav was simply a good bloke with a big heart and smile.  

To Kerry and Matthew and the wider families, our sincerest condolences.

Vale John Gavin
