    From the first time I met John I knew he was a straight shooter, no bullshit sort of bloke who would do anything for his family. He and Viv raised three beautiful independent women and they new he was always there for them. I will miss the family gatherings and having a few beers and a chat with you John.

    Vivienne it is a few years since we’ve seen each other but reading the testimonials I see John was a wonderful husband and father which is a precious thing to know. Take care and love to you all.

    As my new employer, I remember feeling he seemed like a tough guy and a bit scary the first time I met him. But he was a top bloke and we had some good chats in later years. I won’t forget you John.
    My deepest sympathies to all the family.

    As a friend of his daughters I often saw John at events. I remember John always made me feel welcome. He saw past the quiet person and appreciated me for me. I remember John as a big personality. His cheeky jokes always made me laugh.

    Vale Uncle John there will truly never be another like you. What a privilege to be your niece & the memories shared from The Ritz in London to the laughs in Mentone and your visits to the farm with your beautiful girls and laughter around the pool table. You were a great friend & mentor to Whitey/Chalky who respected you for your business talents and love for life. Thoughts are with Viv, Penny, Sally & Amy-Bec. No longer in pain no pressure to be the life of the party we will play your music loud and celebrate you yes my favourite Uncle John.
    Love you more Bec, Adrian, Annabelle & Tom xxxxx

    John could build a team better than anyone, we all enjoyed the camaraderie he created and the knowledge that he always had your back.
    Leadership appeared effortless for John, worked hard, played hard and always with a great sense of dry humour.
    Never forgotten, and will always be celebrated April 25th.
    Cheers Zac thanks for the mateship.
