Deepest sympathy Wendy and family xxx

My thoughts are with you all at this sad and difficult time.........

John was a dear mate. A good man who made the world a better place. What a legacy he left. He had that rare quality of making his audience of the sick and frail smile just by being there. He was the President of our concert party Musical Memories for several years and a member for twenty years rarely missing a concert. Lovely man, one of the very best.

We remember John's unselfish commitment as a volunteer in the Wynnum community. He was so generous in doing things for others. Geoff remembers the times walking with John on the waterfront and hearing his stories of Wynnum. John's love of Wendy and family was lovely to see. We are thinking of his family at this time of loss and pray for comfort for you all.

Dear Wendy and Family, We give thanks for every remembrance of dear John. He was a true and loyal Christian friend and practical helper of so many people. We'll miss him but look forward to a reunion in Glory. The Lord surround you all with His deep peace. and give you daily all sufficient grace in your time of loss. We rejoice that John is safe home with the Lord he loved and served "To be with Christ is far better" The Lord surround you all with His deep peace. and give you His daily all sufficient grace in your time of loss. We rejoice that John is safe home with the Lord he loved and served "To be with Christ is far better" Peter F Yes, John was a "for real" man - no sham, straight from the shoulder and with a good will in all he said and did. It always made you glad to see him and was hard to see him gradually failing towards the end. He's left that weakened painful body now, and though it must seems bleak facing life without him beside you, dear Wendy, we do praise God for that sure re-union before the throne that you can look to ahead. It is comforting and true that the Lord is with you here and He's also with John there - just on the other side. With love and prayers Rosemary F

John was a lovely man with a heart of gold. I will miss him at our regional LinC meetings. God bless you John.

Dearest Wendy & family, I am so sorry that John is no longer with us here on earth - we will miss his happy face. I know he is now at peace and heaven is rejoicing in his company with lots of music -singing/dancing and comedy happening there now! John brought much joy to so many in the few years that I was privileged enough to have known him. The joy he experienced from performing in our Musical Memories concerts was clear by the expression on his face. I will always remember that rehearsal when he tasted the dog treats by mistake! He was one of a kind and will never be forgotten. Sending you all love and prayers xo

We were so sorry to hear of your loss, our love goes out to you all and we are thinking of you

I have only known John for a short time through LinC. I have no doubt he is with his Lord who has prepared a place for him. My prayers are with you Wendy and the family at this sad time. John is unique and will be sadly missed. It was a privilege to know John and I look forward to seeing him again when I get there.

Our love and condolences to the family. May God's love and peace surround you and comfort you all during your loss.

Farewell Uncle John. Love from Julie and Brodie
