To John’s family
Will miss John’s smile and and gentle nature…..he will be missed by all who knew him ……sincere sympathy to all the family……
I was very sorry to hear of the passing of John. I knew him for a few years through Lions Radio Bingo, when I did fill-in announcing. John was always sweet, talkative and friendly. I really enjoyed seeing him and hearing his jokes, calling him “the crystal ball” (since he had the computer that told us if there was a winner). My sincere condolences to his friends, family, and especially to the Liverpool Lions Club, I know they have lost a great friend and supporter.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all in your time of sorrow.
