Dear Brother John
I will miss our regular conversations of the happy times and childhood memories from our past, you and I were the last remaining two of the original six siblings and at their loss we both took comfort in our enduring relationship.
As the youngest I will always remember the love and special bond that existed between us all

John always known as Dawn's dad. Was a great supporter of Hayden playing football along side his grandson Thomas. Watching them at weekends play on the field, presentation and school events. When Hayden stated he was off to America to continue his football career he gave Hayden words of encouragement which we will always cherish.
John was one of the most kind hearted persons you would ever know having such a gentle nature he will be sadly miss and our thoughts and love go out to all his family.
