John Withers Passes - Funeral Details




It is with great sadness that I inform you that John Withers passed away last Thursday evening.


John Withers was the Club Coach at Blacktown City Judo Club for many years as well as a previous national coach and office bearer for Judo NSW.


John produced a great number of judoka and national champions - truly too many to mention(!)


In essence, we have lost a long standing Coach and valued member of Judo NSW who 'lived & breathed' judo demonstrating a deep commitment to the sport and its participants.


On behalf of the Judo NSW Board and Executive team I would like to express our condolences and sympathy to his son Scott and the Withers family.


John Withers funeral

Wednesday the 29th of July at 9.00 am at  the Pinegrove crematorium.

North Chapel, Great Western Highway, Minchinbury.
