John’s Spirit, Kindness and Enthusiasm for life set a high standard that will be sorely missed in the community, Watching him walk the beach and ride out to his yacht to sail set an example for continually embracing life. His advocacy for preserving the Jewel and its traditions, while providing modern facilities are gifts to the future. On a personal level his support to the Christmas Parade at a critical juncture kept the tradition alive and is only one example of his quiet generosity throughout the community, It was my privilege to have known him, albeit briefly.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our cousins for their loss. We wish them a peacefully transition during this time of morning and settlement of the family affairs.

Uncle John's comments at the family shareholders' meeting will be missed.

With love from,

Kelly, Dawn, Sonia, Glyde, and Lucas
