    Just found a photo of John and myself with the Greek Saintee (owned the bar) outside Johns local in Athens. Great memory!

    Such sad news. Myself and my wife had the pleasure of meeting up with John and his good lady in Athens shortly after the cup final. We had never met but arranged to meet up via WAP. John was unmistakable in his St Johnstone shirt as he walked towards us in Athens Airport. He quickly whisked us to his local where we met his wife and a number of his expat pals who were all converted Saintees - as was the Greek owner of the bar! After a few beers and onwards to his local taverna where  yet more locals and converted Saintees appeared. I had brought a couple of cup winners tee shirts as  gifts and he was over the moon! After great food and numerous tsiporos, great chat about Saints, Perth and his pals and adversaries on WAP it was back to the airport with a fuzzy head for an onward flight. Great hospitality, great chat, great memories and a great guy.
    Condolences to his family and friends at their sudden sad loss.

    Very sorry to hear this. A character he definitely was and the forum will be a much less colourful place without him. 

    Condolences to the ones who knew him best on here and his family. RIP

    Met John over 15 years ago, in London, and Perth, and Athens nearly came off too.
    And you know I was thinking about him, might have been yesterday. Cos I've not been on here as much, and with recent posts I'd thought, "John's not chipped in", now this. Gutted.
    Just so so sorry to read this, I'll really miss him on here. ****. This sucks.
    Joss - I'm sorry mate. My Dad is the other side of the world, and I dread this sort of news coming in.  Thanks for posting the photo, it's one for the ages now. Sending you love.
    John - RIP ...... you made this place ...SHINE BRIGHT <3

    Very sad to hear.
    I think Joss summed up his presence on here very well and he always seemed a character.I think he let his guard down once or twice as there were a couple of times I agreed with him.
    RIP Business Class Saintee.

    Very sorry to hear this and condolences to those that knew him and especially his family. It might just be a messageboard, but it will be poorer, and certainly quieter, without him. RIP.

    Hi everyone.
    Found out the news about my dad on Friday. It was very sudden but as none of his family were in Panama at the time details are few and far between at the minute. Expecting a call from the Embassy in the next couple of days and will know more then.
    He was a great Dad and loved nothing more than telling me on a Saturday morning who he’d been winding up on WAP over the last few days and who he was beating in the predictor!
    Being away from Perth for many years meant this place gave him an outlet for all things St Johnstone and enabled him to have debates and conversations, which many of us get in the pub on a Saturday afternoon, with all of you.
    Thanks to anyone who berated him, nibbled at his bait or rised to him any time he put up a nonsense post as he thrived on it and, while he often came across as abrasive on here, it was always in jest with a tongue firmly in cheek and his way of still being involved with saints from a far.
    My brother Saul and I (Joss) would like to pass on our thanks to everyone for their kind words and for humouring him over the past few years
