RIP John Gill ...

Saddened to learn this evening, from Daphne, that John Gill who co wrote the Skopelosnews blog, has passed away, I understand that John had been ill for some time ...

He was a lovely man, and we always had a great banter via E Mail, and a 'beer or two' when he visited Skiathos, en route somewhere, often crewing a yacht as Skipper round the islands

John was the duty journalist, who broke the news for the Daily Express, of the passing of the Princess of Wales. He was the only one that night with an Apple Mac, who could change the front page, and stop the presses on that fateful morning in Fleet Street.

Καλό ταξίδι φίλε to a lovely gentleman, and neighboring island friend. Who will be so sorely missed by all of us, who were lucky enough to know him ...
