  1. Sincere condolences to all on the passing of John. He was a lovely man, quick-witted, intelligent, and always a gentleman. It was a pleasure to have known him. Lindy

  2. Maria, what a beautiful tribute to John. I wish I could physically be there to help support you through this grieving process. Please know although I’m in Minnesota, I am here for you.

  3. Condolences to all John’s friends and family. Glen Iris has lost a great club man. Was fortunate to know John through cricket. Lovely person and always an interesting guy to have a beer with. The only person I ever saw him say a bad word to was himself when he was frustrated with his bowling (something he had a love/hate relationship with) if someone else stuffed up would be super supportive. The world has lost a truly nice guy. May he rest in peace.

  4. Sincere empathy and condolences extended to everyone experiencing the profound absence of John’s being. May John’s spirit live on in the hearts and souls of those who were blessed to know and love him.

    And may God, alongside our ancestors, provide tender comfort, love, and strength to my dear Aunt Maria during this season of grief and mourning.

    With love from Superior, Wisconsin,
    Caitlin Ann

    Good bye, Oggey, our mate,
    You could pen a tune or 2,
    Now who will remember birthdays?
    We are gonna miss you.

    As one of the ditty writers for Greg Champion we loved John’s input. His songs were always relevant and witty. John was also best at remembering our birthdays. John was such a cherished member of our little group, RIP John, much love to Maria, John and families, from Patti from Rezza
