Lorraine & Mark, I just heard the sad news and so I'm sorry I did not attend John's funeral. Kindness and joy are my memories of John. He was my first Pit Boss and so, because of John I had a soft landing into the industry. I am thinking of you both at this time and hope you can find some comfort in the wonderful memories you shared over the thankfully long years. My love to you and the children (adults though they might be). The world looks a little less kind and joyful through my tears for John.

It is always sad to hear that a good friend has died, and John is no exception. I cried and then my tears turned to a smile as I remembered so many occasions when we laughed 'till we cried, and then we laughed some more. So glad our paths crossed. You will be sorely missed. Deepest condolences to Lorraine, Steven, and Kristy.
Jan K and Fam.

From the early days of Wrest Point where you charmed the dames of Sandy Bay with your personality and humour to your days in Asia where you were admired and respected you certainly left your mark . The rest of us pay tribute to that legacy . Or deepest sympathy to Lorraine and family. Vale John

To you John - a man who was full of fun and generosity. It was a privilege to know you and to be able to share our youth with you and Lorraine in those early years at Wrest Point. Oh, what fun times we had. We have shed a tear for you and said a prayer - hope it helps get you through those pearly gates. Condolences to all the family. Love forever John & Chrissie Mannix
