In memory of John Aylen

Many at the club were saddened to hear that John Aylen passed away on Christmas day at the age of 91. John and his late wife Andrée were life-time members of the Minto Skating Club. John continued to be an active member of the club community after the passing of Andrée and he was always a good friend to the club. His wisdom and legal advice were invaluable over the years and he and Andrée were proud sponsors of Minto Summer Skate for many years including this past summer's competition.

We extend our deepest sympathies to John's family and friends at this time. John will be greatly missed by many in the Minto Skating Club community.

More details about John can be found here. Details of the visitation and service can be found here.
