Remembering John Peery
It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of longtime Apopka Chief editor John Peery. When Wekiva opened in 2007, J.P. expanded the sportswriting staff of the Chief, adding Neal Fisher, who has faithfully covered Wekiva sporting events these past 17 years. John and Neal have dedicated themselves to ensuring that Wekiva receives equitable coverage and that the achievements of our teams and athletes are highlighted for our community. Even after retiring from full time work two years ago, John could often be seen taking in a high school game. He was a beacon of the City of Apopka, and his absence will be deeply felt. We extend our condolences to his family and all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
