We have just been informed that John Burrell passed away on Wednesday 9/2/2020. John was a tireless chess player who never backed away from a challenge. He met everyone he came across the board with a great friendly smile and hand shake. A kind and gentle soul who will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to cross his path. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to his loved ones. He will be greatly missed by all. John is on the right, picture was taken at the Older than Chess Club.
