Not sure what to say?

My wife Angela was a fellow pupil of Johns at Parcyrhun Primary School in Ammanford. She remembers him as a talented pupil even in those early years. Subsequently, the three of us were pupils at Amman Valley Grammar School where he shone academically. We were both undergraduates at Bangor University in North Wales, and shared several journeys home together. We remember with affection Johns intelligence, Kindness and wicked sense of humour. Rest in Peace John.

Living in John's home town in Wales, I hadn't seen him for several years. But I'm saddened knowing he's no longer there, thousands of miles away, just being John. Unique, sharp and very funny.

As I grew up he was always somewhere in the background, even if that was Wantage or New York. When he was around there was never a dull moment.

Back in 1996 I was jobless and aimless. John introduced me to the World Wide Web at a time when most people in the UK had never heard of...

John was my best friend at university and for years afterwards; I was very saddened to hear of John's loss. He was the Best Man at my wedding to Joan and I was the Best Man at his first wedding, to Cynthia. He was a tremendous person, demonstrating unfailing energy and kindness wherever he went. I learned much from him. Although we have been out of touch in recent years, I will miss him badly.
