With all his children and grandchildren , John & Valerie instilled in them all how to be good people , caring and considerate to those less fortunate , as he himself always was .John somehow found the time and energy to become a leading Antique Silver Dealer , he had friends and clients from all over the world . John was the life and soul of any event he attended , he was a loyal friend and these friendships lasted for decades . John's battle with Covid 19 lasted for 18 days , the last 10 days in hospital , he fought the virus valiantly , it was not his time , but it tragically got the better of him on April 15th 2020 . John lit up and touched so many peoples lives and though that light has now been extinguished it will always remain bright in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known and loved him
