    John was my lifelong friend. We went to the same school, Prince Henry's Grammar, Evesham, Worcs. John was only two weeks younger than me. We shared the same classroom, played in the first 11 soccer team and enjoyed each others company in many field sports. John, after leaving school, worked at Harwell (Rutherford Nuclear Atomic Establishment (during which he was awarded a Doctor of Science Degree for his work) and settled down in Wantage. Later in my life, my wife and I settled down in the Newbury Area, and thus we shared many lunches with John and Rose, and when not weeting up we were regularly exchanging views and opinions re the day's news, sports (he was keen on watching horseracing and was a regular visitor to Newbury Races) etc via email. I miss his 'companianship' and chats verbally on the phone or via email. His passing was sudden and unexpected - and a shock and loss to me. I miss him not being in my life anymore.
