It is with tremendous sadness I have to report the passing of our dear club member John Miller. John had been ill for some time and he succumbed last Friday, September 13th.

Our club is one of the best clubs in New England.  It is such in large part due to John’s work with the club in its early days.  John was the President for some years finally giving up the baton in 2010.  John was involved with the club from its embryonic days and stood fast to make it the club it is today. We club members all owe John a debt of gratitude.

John served as a police officer in the town of Barnstable ensuring the safety and security of its residents and visitors. They owe him a debt of gratitude.

And finally, John was a veteran who served the United States of America well. This nation owes John a debt of gratitude.

This remarkable man who lived to serve others will be sadly missed.

There will be a funeral service at St Francis Xavier Church on South Street, Hyannis on Thursday, September 19 at 10:00 am followed by his interment at the National Cemetery.
