We are both so very sad at the loss of our wonderful friend. His contribution to Spencer Club was immense and he was always delighted to hear about the continued success of the club and its high standing.
We are comforted by the knowledge that we have many warm,happy memories from our friendship of over 50 years.

We were tracking down John to join a lunch to celebrate 50 years since starting articles to train for accountancy. John was a bit older than us but well liked by all and we were sorry to discover this. I met him again later when I played once for the Spencer 6th team which my brother Duncan, also sadly now departed, then captained. We will drink to his memory
