  1. David Hext says:

    John was, quite simply, an absolute legend. An inspiration to me and my entire family. The hole that he leaves is enormous, but the legacy is immense and will stay with us for ever.

  2. Stephen Lye says:

    Sorry to hear of John’s passing – many ex colleagues at The Bank of England will remember him as a Gentleman in every sense of the word – great sense of humour and a dedicated campanologist.

  3. Marion Hext says:

    John was always full of good humour and a zest for life. He was always interested in new ideas and would often preface his sentence with ‘Cor’. He loved his home, and his family will remember him with love and affection.

  4. Lisa Quinn says:

    Meeting Kate at pre-school at 2 yrs old meant growing up with each other’s families and both Shelia and John were instrumental in such wonderful childhood memories. John was such a gentle soul, a true English gent who had such a positive view on life which I have often reflected on as I’ve grown older. I remember he always had a smile on his face and often a playful one! A man that has touched many lives and I know will be sorely missed by all. RIP John x

  5. Lesley Foot says:

    I first met John & Sheila when I was 17 years old & for what ever reason they stuck with me doing their hair 42. I will miss them both. My deepest condolences to their family.

  6. John Abendstern says:

    I will miss John and Sheila. They were such lovely and welcoming people. It was always a treat to stay with them at Willow Holme.

  7. nigel BEVITT-SMITH says:

    John was a work colleague over 30 years ago. The number of former colleagues who remember him with kind thoughts is a testament in itself. He never had a bad word to say about anyone or anything & always glossed over any personal adversity, even in his last months.

  8. Jane O’Driscoll says:

    John was to me, without doubt, a splendid cousin.
    He and Sheila portrayed a huge generosity of spirit and will be remembered
    with great affection by a myriad number of people. Jane Eyre xx

  9. Kate Ing says:

    As a teacher they say kids don’t remember what you taught them but rather how they made you feel. That couldn’t be more true with John. Despite never honestly getting the hang of anything beyond a plain bob on first bell, I felt like a master under his tutorage. I have so many happy memories of my time ringing, and of being welcomed at John and Sheila’s quite before I met Kate who, once I knew her, I realised embodies all of their kindest qualities and was, of course, how their daughter would be. A truly wonderful, thoughtful, considerate and funny man who this earth will miss but whose life has left a wonderful print.
