  1. I will remember Father John as a kind and gentle man . Who listened when you needed to talk . He will be greatly missed by everyone.


  2. Remembering many happy times spent with dear Fr John when he was our Parish Priest in Hastings. He was such a lovely, gentle, caring and kind priest, our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time. Rest in peace.
