I came to work with John at the ESBS in 1960 and will always remember how kind he and Sylvia were to me and my new husband Joe. I remember us going to a tennis club social and to Coventry to see Roy Castle, amongst other things. A true gentleman - may he rest in peace.
My condolences to Sylvia and the family.

To John a true friend and guide; your wise counsel will be missed by all of us that knew you in the Knights of Malta Lodge No. 50, the Knight of Malta Lodge of MMM T.I. and the other Lodges and Chapters you were a member of. Sleep now in peace in the arms of God.

Dear Sylvia and family
Frances and I send our sincere condolences and grateful thanks for such a long friendship, especially at Abersoch in happier times. Round Table and Ladies Circle coupled of course with Rotary and Inner Wheel, all have memories which we are privileged to retain.
John was a true gentleman in every sense of the word and his passing has left the world a much poorer place. May he Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory
