  11. My dear friend and the true legend of the SWFNC John DeGrandi you were always a true gentleman you will be dearly missed by myself, my family and everyone who knew you.

    You took me under your wing from my very first day as a trainer at 14 at South, we always had lots of fun, laughs and chats, even at functions you looked out for me and always made sure I got home safely.

    I still remember our very first Under 18 Progressive dinner we went along to together it was the funniest and best time we still talked about it to this day.

    This has just broken my heart the club won’t be the same without you mate, my family and I will miss all the fun times, laughter and dancing at our birthday parties.

    Our catch ups twice even three times a week down the street, we could talk for hours and even when Covid hit we still stayed in touch I am going to miss seeing you and catching up and all the fun times we had together.

    RIP Mate, I will miss you and never forget you until we meet again one day in Heaven.

    Love always and forever your dear friend

  12. John was such a wonderful person, he never found fault with people, he simply didn’t look for it! He loved so much, seeing his footy and netball teams go well and his horses run fast, and the company of the many people he met along the way! Rest peacefully Johnny. Leon and family
