It is with great sadness that I bring you the news of the November 29, 2018 passing of John Ives, a founding member of Lady Gator Golf Boosters. He and his wife Ann devoted much time to developing and nurturing our organization and both have been Patrons for many years.
John was a respected member of the Gainesville community, serving in hospital administration as well as being instrumental in the establishment of the Ronald MacDonald House of North Central Florida.
He held official posts as Board Member of the Florida State Golf Association and was a longtime USGA Rules Official, in addition to being past president of the Gator Golf Boosters
John was a golf coach at Oak Hall for the JV and Girl’s teams and officiated for junior, high school and collegiate golf—including our annual UF Women’s Collegiate Invitational Tournament.
We are grateful for the efforts he gave on behalf of our organization and we extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Ann.
A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday, December 5 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Gainesville Golf and Country Club, 7500 SW 35th Way, Gainesville, FL
