A truly wonderful person taken too soon. Gunter Beyer and the rest of the Beyer family will miss his sense of humour, friendship and love of life immensely.

An absolute gentleman and a truly wonderful person who touched the lives of many. I'm blessed to have crossed paths with John. I would never have passed chemistry at Alanvale in 1990 had it not been for Johnny Mac. Even years later John always would stop for a chat if he ran into you. The world has lost a true character. My condolences to his family.

Macca was an outstanding teacher, and a legend of the highest order.

I was fortunate to be in his chemistry class. The stories he told were hilarious and educational. Last week I was on the West Coast, and tried to retell one his tales about zinc mining. I couldn't do the story justice, but it's a credit to his teaching that I still remember what a "sacrificial anode" is. This particular story was one of many that also revealed Macca's compassion and egalitarian values.

Many former students continued to visit Macca at Newstead until his retirement. During these conversations Macca was mostly interested in my developing friendships and relationships, rather than my career progress. Although he was a brilliant teacher, I remember thinking that Macca placed his family and friends above all. He was a wonderful role model.

Macca will be fondly remembered by his students. My thoughts are with those who knew him best.

Dear Uncle John,
you've left this world way to early.It has been a privilege to have had you as my uncle. Your wisdom and sense of humour will be sorely missed. Until we meet again.
Rest in Peace Macca.
Love Emily, Shane, Jessie, Sean and Grace.
