It is with the greatest sadness that Windrush Bowmen announce that John Devaney, Life President, former Chairman, Field Officer and long time member of our club passed away on the 10th of April.
No-one who met John could fail to be impressed by his integrity, his quiet authority and his wisdom. Generations of archers have benefited from his insight and patient instruction. With a keen glance he could spot an archer’s problems and with few, plain words set them on the right path.
He has been instrumental in building Windrush Bowmen into the success it enjoys today. He will be a hard act to follow.
John was a good man, a true leader, a superb archer and he will be greatly missed, both by the club and the whole sport to which he gave so much.
Rest in peace.
