Our Love and Prayers with you all at this time, having known John as the Father of some of you in our Youth, as a regarded Senior Clergy mate, and then as a helpful provider along with Shirley in their role as marriage counselors. Mud and Jane

our love and prayers are with you all today. May the Wonder and the Assurance of Life Eternal with God the Father, Jesus our Saviour and the Ever present Holy Spirit give you courage today and for tomorrow. Guess who will be at the open door of heaven to welcome you when called home?!!! Lovingly Lorna and Murray

What a lovely man! I have fond memories of being gently mentored by John (and Shirley) during my early and mid 20s. John helped me prepare for my Anglican selection conference in 1987. He told me they would ask why I wanted to be ordained as a priest and made me think about it for a week. I came back to him admitting that I couldn’t think of a good answer (beyond believing God was calling me, of course!). I asked him what “the answer” was – he smiled that cheeky grin and admitted he was still trying to work it out himself! John always took God and others seriously, but rarely himself too much – a model of humble and loving service to God and His creation. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Dearest John,
Thank you for being a loving and supportive father in law and grandfather to me and Joshua. I will always remember your cheeky smile and sparkling eyes. We love you. Thankyou for looking after Shirley whom we also love very much. Say hi to Jesus for me John please. Love Linda
