As a business partner of John for ten years I knew John's professional acumen, his love of his family and a determination to find a solution to problems that occur in all partnerships. While John and I did not always agree, we were, I hope, respectful of each others talents.
It was at our business luncheons together, away from our office, that John and I enjoyed each other's company the most.
Farewell John. Condolences to all the members of your large family.

Farewell to John and thankyou for your enthusiasm for life, family, architecture, farm life and cattle. I have so many fantastic memories of lunches, visits and sleepovers at Arthurs Seat, Brentwood and Docker. As a close friend to Sarah, John you always welcomed me into your family with such care and support. A little work always had to be finished on the farm like picking apples, carting hay, finding runaway cows and separating the bulls from the cows. Then Sarah and I could play, in our school days it was to ride our horses, then in Docker it was drinking a glass of red while our kids played in the pool. Thankyou John, I will always remember your cheeky smile and kindness towards me. My sincere condolences to Judith, Sarah, Emily, Rob and George. Unfortunately I will not be able to join you to celebrate John's amazing life, but will be thinking of you on Thursday from Jordon. Lots of Love Nina Buxton

At Melb Uni 1964-68, John and I became close friends, not only as fellow archi students but also as inmates of International House, 1966-68. We did our 2nd year measured drawing together (with Debbie McColl) of a house in Macarthur Place - and by the strangest of coincidences, it was just last Wednesday that I reminded Debbie and others from our Year of '64. John and I co-wrote our history essay on the North Melbourne Town Hall in 4th year and we swotted final year together. After Uni, I worked with John at the family firm of Garnet Alsop & Partners, and we attended each other's weddings.

But life all too often takes us in different directions, and somehow John and I only saw each other two or three times over the next 40 years, including a couple of recent re-unions.

On 30th May, I managed to track John down via old friends from our days at International House, where we considered ourselves blood brothers. We enjoyed a very long telephone call, during which we reminisced with great fondness upon our happy and almost carefree days in International House, in retrospect as much festive as educational ... memories of alternating carbon-paper copies of our lecture notes with hangovers, engaging our 1st year girlfriends to help draw up our final design theses, sailing and water skiing at Daveys' Bay, or of one late night staggering home inebriated from Naughton's and riding around Royal Park on the shoulders of the George Hawkins Ievers memorial drinking fountain on Royal Parade.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend John's memorial on Thursday, but I will be there in spirit. My sincere condolences to Judy and the family.
