Bytown Blues Update May 14th 2020
Passing of John Redican
We are sad to inform the membership of the passing of John Redican on May 13th 2020. There will not be a funeral in according to John’s wishes.
We’ve been asked to include the same message John shared when his father died, “have a beer in his honour”.

Rachel Cullum and Gabe Casey.
