    What sad news. I e-mailed John shortly after I discovered this site but didn't manage to chat to him. I have very fond memories of him and Dorothy, at parties in our flat and swimming off the rocks. And of course playing the piano for those great musicals - The Magic Nutcracker in particular. My parents kept in touch for years, now both dead. He sent great round robins in his Xmas cards. He was a larger than life person, a man you never forget and had a huge influence on young people. A sad loss. I will light a candle for him at Mass tomorrow and pray for him and Dorothy and their children. Rest in Peace John
