John was passionate about rowing throughout his life and particularly making the sport accessible to a broader range of people through recreational and touring rowing. He was never afraid to speak his mind and made a difference wherever he was involved. He was enthusiastic and a great support to the British Rowing Recreational Rowing Committee, on which he served for many years, always attending events despite his advancing health problems
We spent many hours talking about our shared interests and he will be greatly missed and well remembered.
John Turnbull
Chairman, British Rowing Recreational Rowing Committee

Vale John.

So sad to mark the passing of someone who contributed so strongly to the success of MIRC, especially its junior members, and to my own rowing.

Thank you John and Rest in Peace.

So sad that John had to deal with so much in the later years, which he managed characteristically stoically, philosophically and calmly. But good to know that he was so well supported at Heart of Kent Hospice - thank you to doctors and nurses there.

My sincere condolences to daughter Jo and to John’s wider family on his passing.

Sandy and I will miss John's company on the rowing tours and at recreational rowing meetings. He always had an anecdote to tell us as well as strong opinions and advise.

Thank you John for all the support you gave me when I approached you back in 2006 when I wanted to start rowing at The Judd School. 14 years later many young people have benefitted from learning how to row. Thank you.

I send John's family and friends my sincere condolences following his death. He had been coming and parking in my (Old Blades') garden during Henley Royal Regatta for many years and will be sadly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
