I am so sorry to find that John has passed. He is one of my happy memories of Topsham while I was visiting for an extended period from Canada. Many hours were spent as he talked about his pride and love for his son Mark, the love of his life Rita and his years at his work.
We attended a Christmas concert at St. Margaret's Church together, and after walking him home in the cold, sat and talked for hours about his life.
He also taught me I couldn't handle "G & T" at 10:00 or 11:00AM as I had to sleep for the rest of the day. I tried a few times, unsuccessfully, but simply didn't have his stamina. A lovely and gentle person. He will be missed.
