Farewell to our old tennis mate John. He was a kind hearted good Australian…..a man of strong principles….good old fashioned values…..but at times he could be pig-headed and stubborn. Tennis was his greatest love. A true Moulamein Legend. Our deepest sympathy to the Shippen Families. Ron & Val McWhae.

Dear Sally and Family, So sad to hear of the passing of John. I will always remember the fun times I had at Moulamein and especially the time John taught me to crack a whip. Rest In Peace and my thoughts are with you.
