In Memoriam: John Marman

The following message is sent on behalf of CGCOA annual sponsor, West Coast Turf:

The West Coast Turf Family has suffered a tragic loss. On Sunday, August 14th, 2022, John Marman, our VP of Sale and Marketing, passed away.

John started with West Coast Turf at age 24, and for the last 27 years rose to be our Vice President of Sales and a leader in our industry.

He leaves behind his sister, Danielle Scardino, sister, Sue Hanks, and his 11-year-old son, Knox, the light of his life.

He was a friend to all. There are no words that can describe the terrible grief and pain his loss brings to all of us in the West Coast Turf Family.

The CGCOA Board of Directors and staff extend heartfelt condolences to John’s family, friends, co-workers, and all whom he touched.
