About John

We've lost a husband, father, son, brother, grandad and friend.

John, and the world as we know it will never be the same again.

John fought his illness with with courage, dignity and despite terrible times he never complained and didn't want people to know how difficult some days could be.

But that was John, his determined approach to life allowed us to travel and make treasured memories that we will have forever.

The best times by far had to be Amy and Mike getting married and then like a miracle, he welcomed his grandson Elliott into the world, who he adored.

Whilst we are heartbroken now and paralysed with the loss, we take comfort in the person that we knew. He was kind, loving, supportive, a true gentleman and he would want us to move forward however difficult.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all our family and friends who have showed so much love and support throughout these four years. Without it we would not have the strength we have now.
