From Marje Boxall (via Pauline Bowell)
Marje & Norman are so very sad to learn of Johnís passing and remember him fondly. They used to frequently have dinner with John & Jan and Ali & Glynne Tucker. John once challenged Norman to ďgo the whole HogĒ and eat the HUGE pie at The James King, thus qualifying him for a Certificate, which he still has to this day! Happy memories! They both will miss him and send their condolences to all the family.

From Pauline Bowell
I am so sorry to learn this news. John was always so very kind to me and we used to laugh such much! Following surgery in 1986 when I was single, as our Union Rep he arranged for me to have 2 weeks Convalescence at the TGWU hotel in Eastbourne, which I really appreciated. He visited me there to, making me laugh of course as he always did & cheering me up a lot, something Iíll never forget and always appreciate! Rest in Peace John, you were so well thought of and loved.
