I knew John about 10 years ago and had worked with him on some European working groups.
I appreciated his professionality and quiet savoir-faire to manage agreements between parties time by time. He always expressed his point of view with impartiality and correctness.
I also remember his joy of life when he told us about his adventure during the bicycle travel London-Paris.
I have to say he’ll be sadly missed by many people.
I like to remember him with this photo where I am with John and some colleagues of WG 48 of CEN/TC 256.
My sincere condolences to John’s family and his colleagues at RSSB.
