Our heart and thoughts are today with the family of our beloved friend Francisco Javier Martija, who passed away a few days ago. Born in Guernica, Spain, in 1954, Martija enjoyed a successful career as a Jai-Alai player in Florida, Bridgeport and Milford. He was also a very active member of our club. In lieu of flowers, Martija’s friends are collecting donations to start an education fund for his grandchildren. Check out the following link.
