I first met John when I interviewed him for the position at RSSB all those years ago. I could see a passion within him for the work, a strong desire to get things done, but also done right and thorough.
All the while I worked with John, he was a great colleague and team member, always going the extra mile and as an auditor, he had that great knack of knowing when something was not quite right, but then helping all to learn and improve for the future.
John always was a great team player, supporting work colleagues and active in social events and putting 100% in to all that he did.
I shall miss him greatly and would wish to pass on my condolences to his family, friends and all who knew him.
