John Krey

It is with great sadness that I tell you that John F. Krey has passed away.

At 11:45 AM, March 23, I received a call from Bob Wall, Johnís nephew, who informed me that John passed in his sleep at approximately 5AM this morning.

It is probable John will be interred out of state, and a memorial will be held locally. Krey Field will be closed Saturday 3/29.

I have no other information at this time, but will let you all know as soon as it becomes available.

I would ask you keep John and the Family in your thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Mike Malis
California State Governor,
Region 12
Soaring Society of America
