Today we learned that Billy Johns has passed away. Billy, his wife Jean, daughter Bev and grand daughters Brenda and Diane have all contributed massively as coaches and swimmers here in Zimbabwe. Billy coached for the majority of his life only retiring in 2014 from the pool deck having served for nearly 50 years in one way or another. The family have been associated with Otters swimming club and in particular the Les Brown pool where Billy was Superintendent for many years, but Billy managed many Zimbabwean swimming teams on trips to South Africa and Europe over the years. Our condolences to their family.
