I have very fond memories of Johnno. Got to know him at Kiwi Pie radio.
John loved his country music and would be at most of the gigs around Southland. He was a great help at Waikiwi music club and would be there everytime to help set up. You will be so missed. Rest in peace.


A kind and caring man who will be sadly missed by all. Rest In Peace Uncle John.
