Last week my friend John Walsh passed away after a year-long battle with Leukemia. (For the ones who do not recognize the name, you may remember him as the DM on the liberty for the better part of the 90s). John was a great Father, Friend and Dive Master who touched many lives. The funeral services were last Saturday and it was vary clear by the amount of people that showed up that John was truly a great man that will be missed by many.
John was an inspration to many in the dive community. I for one will miss the presense of my mentor. A legend has surly passed. I can only hope that every time I work a dive boat that a little of Johns teachings live on in me. Thank you John. My heart goes out to his family who should have not had to suffer this loss.
God Speed John, we all will miss your presence.
