NER Says Goodbye to Long-Time Member

The New England Region is saddened to announce the passing of John Travers. John was a fifty-year-plus member of the SCCA, joining the club on March 1, 1969. John raced a red Sprigdet and a ’57 blue bugeye Sprite, still competing up until 2011, dominating the FP class as a New England Regional class champion through the 70s and 80s. He also held a Tech license for just as long. John and his wife, Pat, spent many years volunteering with new driver permits and school registrations.

Both John and Pat last attended the NER Championship weekend at Thompson back on October 3-4.

John passed peacefully in his sleep at his home on November 3. The couple live in Cranston, RI.

The region extends its condolences to the Travers family during this difficult time.
