Devastating loss of a very dear friend to me and so many, a man with a heart that knew no bounds to friendship and generosity, who gave his all to his family, friends, masonry and all that he was involved with. Our sincere thoughts and condolences are to Clare and all close family. May he now rest in peace.
A wonderful man and Mason, gentle in his nature and always kindly and accommodating. A great servant in the past to Tapton Masonic Hall and someone who in every respect will be sadly missed.
John was a fantastic support to me as Chairman of Tapton Hall. He spent so much time and showed tremendous ingenuity in ensuring the building was maintained to the high standards it deserved.
As a Freemason he was everywhere supporting his own and other Lodges. As a man he was everything you would hope all Masons would aspire to being kind, committed, and a good friend. A maason who will be missed.
A vey sad loss to all who knew John, our thoughts are with Clare and family, rest in peace John
Very sorry to read this. Great bloke who I had known for many years. Condolences to Clare remembered from our days at Ecclesfield Grammar. School.

John will be greatly missed by all the brethren of the Lodge. He supported both his Lodge and the workings of Tapton Hall over many years. Rest in Peace.
John ( along with his late father Harold) was my proposer into freemasonry, during his year in the Chair of Furnival Lodge, and was a great supporter of my masonic career thereafter. A sad loss to the craft of a genuine and caring human being.
