My condolences to all Johns family.
I havenít been in contact with John for over 35 years, however I always remember him as one of the nicest people.
he used to let us into the drive in when he managed that, and I think I did my second or third flying lesson with him at Aeropelican back in 1976. I use to go for rides in the C402 from Aeropelican -Sydney return as a kid with John. Lovely bloke. Good memories.

A true gentleman both in the air and on the ground in every sense.

RIP John.
