Obituary - John Poyner

By Bryce Cooper

With great sadness we report that John Poyner, a valued member of SCoM and SCGB, great skier and good friend, died in July aged just 57 after a brave fight against cancer. He was always very energetic and this stayed with him to the end. He was still skiing powder in April.

Many will remember John fondly for his friendship. John was very private, but his kindness, fairness and clear thinking will leave a sad gap in many lives. He will be sorely missed especially by his widow, Cosey, and their three children. Our sincere condolences to his family.
