I remember meeting John on the putting green at Frear Park around 1982-83. From then on we became golfing buddies. We played in Frears Twilight League together for a couple years while he continued on for several more. We also played in many tournaments as well as just hitting up several golf courses in the area. Ill always remember the great times we had whether it was a good round or bad one on the links. Im truly gonna miss you John. You were a genuine person. RIP

To the Traver family, While I haven't seen John for a few years, I always felt that I've known him most of his life. I'm sure this is a trying time for all of you. Be assured you will be in my prayers.
