San Diego Free Press readers are familiar with long time contributor John Lawrence. He has written a Tuesday column ever since we launched in June of 2012. We were saddened to learn that John recently lost his life partner Judy Oliveira.
There will be a memorial service on Saturday, October 3 and John extends an invitation to the SDFP community to attend.
Memorial Service for Judy Oliveira
Saturday, October 3 at 11 o’clock
El Cajon Chapel of the Valley
1465 E Madison Ave, El Cajon, CA 92019
The Rev. Jim Seaton will preside.
Both Judy and John attended many Free Press gatherings until Judy began experiencing health problems. Those of us who got to know Judy learned that she and John shared a love of jazz. From the time they met two decades ago while they were living downtown until recently, they regularly attended clubs and events to enjoy live music and support San Diego jazz musicians.
Judy celebrated her 73rd birthday last November. John arranged a beautiful party for her that included her favorite music–jazz of course– and pink decor.
Our deepest condolences to John.
