  1. So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I worked with him in Thermo King for many years. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

  2. Worked with John in Tk for many years. A great character and loyal workmate. Sorry to hear of his poor health later in life. He was known as big John and very well remembered for his good humour and his straightforward views on world affairs.
