    Always enjoyed a visit when John came up to the office at Spray. Ready to give us the latest statistics on something and upcoming weather reports. A very knowledgeable person with a great sense of humour. May memories help fill the void for you.

    Murray and Liz
    We are so sorry for the loss of your father and husband. He was a very nice man. I really enjoyed the cribbage games and have missed his smile over the last year due to the COVID restrictions.
