‘You can lose things that can be re­placed, but John is not one of them. A re­ally good friend of 70 years. Leonara and Ed­wina, you lost a lov­ing Dad and Jane a good hus­band. Be grate­ful of your time to­gether.’

‘Such a tragedy, it has re­ally up­set us. A man whose unique achieve­ments will never be sur­passed. RIP.’

‘Very sad, can’t be­lieve it John. You had been so sup­port­ive of me all along! My thoughts are with your fam­ily. REST IN PEACE.’

Steve Rider

‘His mo­tor­sport achieve­ments in be­com­ing a world cham­pion on both two wheels and four will surely never be re­peated. Later in life as a char­ity fundraiser, mo­ti­va­tor and sup­porter of young tal­ent, John showed him­self to be self­less and coura­geous.’
