Such a beautiful service today. It summed up John perfectly and expressed the high regard that John was held in by all who new him. Working with John at Ben Jonson was a lesson in care and thoughtfulness. Personally John was an inspiration to my family when we went through our own health struggles. His positive attitude to life and his commitment to taking the most out of his time on this earth helped us have strength to do the same.
Our last meeting in Rye was a happy one where he was in good health and eager to catch up on news from school. I’ll treasure this memory and the ability that was commented on today that John has that ability to make you feel listened to and looked after when in his presence.
Our thoughts and condolences go to his wonderful children who did him proud today.
Bye John! Enjoy the bikes in heaven - no speed limits!
Charlie and Anna

I have the honour of calling you one of my oldest friends. From the time of early school when we played poker dice in the playground. To Scouts then parties and Pubs. You could drink a few!!!. Or even just listening to classic rock albums.

Remember the time you asked me to pull your car out of the ditch one morning. You never did tell me where or who you had been with. Always the gent.

Although our paths went down different roads you always made it feel that we had see each other only yesterday.

You always had time and a smile for everyone and brought happiness into there lives. And thats why I have the honour total you.

" MY MATE JOHN "

Dear John,

For many years you worked as an Assistant Headteacher at Ben Jonson Primary School in Tower Hamlets, London. Not only did the kids love you - but so did the staff. More than anyone, people still remember and talk about you as someone who brought kindness, grace and a touch of Cary Grant to the school. In fact, we genuinely cannot think of anyone who has worked at the school who was - and is - so universally loved and admired for the way you bought your special brand of humour and goodwill and attention to every conversation and every interaction. Even at your darkest and most painful times you always put others first and remained positive and professional.
Personally, I will always remember how you spoke about your family being your absolute priority (even more that motorbikes!). It was your children and loved ones who sat at the forefront of all that mattered to you - and it was in your role as a father that you appeared most proud -and for good reason! The attention and absolute, unconditional love that you gave to your beautiful family and friends is still shining through and your example of how to live a life will hopefully be passed from your children to theirs. .
John you are - and always will be - the most gentle of gentle-men. We are all so lucky to have known you.
Rest in peace, John.




Ben

From Barry and Pippa in Australia - a message to John - i will include some of this in my Eulogy.

Dear JC
We can't believe you are really gone. It was always so great to catch up with you, your smile, deep heart, your friendship and the way you always made people feel like they were the most important person in your life at that moment you were talking to them. Not to mention your bad jokes.
We remember the good times in Franklin Road, and especially your visit to our home in Perth where you met our "little wrecker" as you called her and we had so many laughs.
You just seemed to fit in
Lately we have so admired the effort you made to engage with us when sometimes it would have been difficult for sure. But your spirit was so evident even when you might have felt crap and you continued to be always interested in our lives in your usual generous way.
Knowing you made us happy. We plan to have a beer or three and plant a tree on our Nannup block for you
We will never ever forget you and send you our love across the seas and beyond
Love always Bazz and Pips x
