Note to Readers:
In last month’s In Memoriam list, we published the name of John Robb as having passed away. That was correct according to the list we received from LACERS. However, in a case of mistaken identities, there is a living Club Member with the same name. The deceased was John O. Robb; John E. Robb, who retired five years ago from the DWP, is alive and we are happy to report well. We apologize for the confusion, and with this month will begin publishing the lists containing middle initials where available. – Ed.
