I loved my time working with John while I was in London and John in Moscow - what a decent, kind, upstanding man he was. I treasure the time we spent together.

A warm and pleasant acquaintance that began while attending Conoco's young engineering training sessions together became a life long close friendship when we served together in Dubai. John and Jenny will be sorely missed and forever remembered by us.
