Dear Marcie and the rest of the Ferretti family, I was very saddened to hear this news from a mutual friend. Many great memories of summers lifeguarding at the Blue Shutters. Numerous summer highlights there but one especially was playing “Turtle” with John and others in the shallow water when the surf was very big. Some serious wipeouts. My thoughts are with you all in memory of John.
