John. The most inspiring, incredible man I've had the pleasure of having in my life. Thankyou for all the memories, lessons for enjoying life, and the many, many tears of laughter. I'll never forget camping down at Monkey, watching you and Paul diving, all of us out with the flounder net, and the endless walks with the dogs. Rest easy Grandad ❤️
