BGA Loses a Best Friend, John J. White

John J. White (1919 - 2011)

I am saddened to share news that the BGA lost one of its best friends, John White. John was a few months short of his 50th anniversary as a BGA Board member when he died last week. I was fortunate to spend a few minutes with John in his final days, and I know he heard and understood my heartfelt expression of gratitude for his passionate commitment to the BGA over nearly half a century.

You can read about John’s remarkable life—he epitomizes the “Greatest Generation”—and find the details of the memorial service planned for Friday, in this death notice, found here.

John: We miss you already.
