Dear poppy, you were always the sun in my eyes, and I was the shadow in yours, as i was growing up and even in my teenage and adult years, I’d always look up to you and follow you around every where any chance I had.

  19. Our Deepest Sympathy to Vicky, Deb, Rohan, Adam, Steven and families.
    A beautiful man who will never be forgotten for the many lives he touched. Such a kind and gentle soul who will live on in his little grand daughter Shae who was lucky enough to inherit these traits off her poppy. Whether it be with an animal or person, they all understood who this gentle soul was. Johnny you done so much for everyone. If ever there was a job need doing and someone asked, you would never say “No.”
    Whenever there was a celebration, you would try to be there. Whenever you were around your girls, Willow and Shae, we could see the love you had for them. The love and laughter and that smile they would bring to your face. We will miss you having Easter brekkie at our place and Christmas at Steve and Shaz’s. When I’m making my trifle, I will be thinking of you. you always took some home and when we’re eating prawns at Christmas, we will be thinking of you. We will talk about Poppy John often and share the beautiful memories we have of you. Love you long time Johnny, See you on the flip side. xx

  22. I am saddened with the news of John’s passing.
    John had a wonderful ability to train young apprentices and had a caring quality for those who were “wet behind the ears”. As a trainer for 40 years I am proud to have had Boundsy as a role model.
    My sincere condolences to his family.
