Legends never die they live on forever in the family they leave and the people the lives they touched along the way. John was unique in so many ways and was a dear cousin to my dad Gary his cousin and my mum Jennifer. I have so many happy memories from stories told. I’m sure he’s telling them all now and the laughter will be plentiful and the party ongoing. Thoughts and hugs Tracey x

John was a special man with very unique communication skills. He had an amazing ability to relax people in meetings and soon have them laughing and enjoying his company. I saw this when I first met him around 1998 and offered him employment initially overseeing the building of my house in Stubbins and then later at Woodford group. We drifted apart in later years and I have retired to the Philippines since 2008. I will never forget John and he has regularly been in my thoughts. My sadness is with the family who I’ve also met them all if only briefly in years gone by.
