I'll always remember Grandad for being as equally kind as he was inventive, he had a good sense of humour and we used to chat about all sorts of things. He could turn his hand to mending or making pretty much anything and when I started playing guitar he insisted on making me a large valve amplifier as he said the sound was much better than modern amps (he was right!) and many years later I am still using it though not at full volume as it's probably loud enough for Wembley Stadium! Rest in Peace Grandad. We will all miss him. Richard

I'll miss John, my "live wire" father-in-law. You could always get a laugh out of him no matter how feeble the joke,and he would always jump at the chance of an outing especially if it involved cars, radios, aeroplanes or cream cakes! Unusually, he enjoyed a wide range of music, from rock & roll and 60s pop, through trad & modern jazz, to the Big
Bands. Thanks for the memories John. God bless, old chap. Dave

Grandad had a down-to-earth sense of humour and the mind of a true engineer and was always 'tinkering' with his vintage radio collection, his beloved cars and pretty much anything else. His skill with electronics sadly didn't extend to his cooking but he still managed to live to a ripe old age, despite his habit of warming sausage rolls up 'just a bit'! Rest in peace- we hope you found that great radio museum in the sky.

John will be remembered by me as a friend, good company and in the most affectionate way, one of life's charming eccentrics. It was a pleasure to have know John and he will be very much missed

When I remember my Grandad I'll remember the stories of his travels, his ability to fix just about anything and the gigantic chocolate duck he got Simon and I one Easter. He was incredibly inventive and resourceful, although sometimes a little too relaxed on the safety side. He was a truly lovely man with a great sense of humour, traits that live on in both my father and brother. We'll all miss him very much.

I will always remember the many great weekends I had with my dad and my Grandad (John) in his Thames Dormobile. Those are truly some of my best memories which will stay with me forever. He was always kind to me & I will miss him alot. I'm so grateful for all the time I got to spend with him at the many car shows we all attended together over the years.
