To our unc (as Matt would say)
You hold a special place in our hearts as Big Johnny in our family. Cool as you like- our unc. Always lovely, never judgemental, a gentleman and hard as nails. We’ve had nothing but love and respect for you as our uncle. We’ve all worked for you, laughed ‘til we’ve cried with you, listened- enraptured by your stories and always loved being in your company. You, along with all the aunts and uncles and nans have meant the world to us and stood us in good stead so an enormous thank you. Family is family with you all and it’s always made us feel safe and loved. I know that our Matt would want me to tell you all of this so I’m saying it for both of us.
Our uncle John- ‘proper’ as Matt would say. xx

Dad I can’t say much more than I love you and will miss you everyday.

Memories of Our trips to droitwich lido having to wait what seemed like forever for you to get a picnic together for me and my friends , always having a blanket and water just in case of emergencies, Trips up the beacon when we walked for miles and precious memories of you in the garden doing your dancing, and also relaxing with your cuppa and fag. ( that’s after mom had thrown you out so she could clean the house )

You never really wanted a dog but someone was getting rid of one and  I persuaded you to have him, didn’t take much as I had you wrapped round my little finger! we called him trigger cause I always wanted a horse but couldn’t afford the stables

You was a big part of all our lives and adored your kids, grandkids, great grandkids and specially mom.

You took on the role of being a fantastic father figure to Reiss Chloe and Amy and for that we will be forever thankful.

We all did you proud I know that!!

one thing that keeps me going is you loved your life with us all, you made each and every one  of us feel so special just like we did you!!!

I will miss you so much and not a day will go by your not spoken or thought about.

As our song goes

“I will always love you”

My wonderful memories........

When Johnny passed away, a massive light left all of our lives.  I didn't see him very often in recent years, but when I did, he was always sure to put a smile on my face. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood of Uncle Johnny - he was such a funny and entertaining man.  As a little kid, he would make me stand in front of the fireplace, or in the front of the patio doors with something to sing into (usually a hairbrush) and I would have to do a talent show for him, where I would sing and dance and he would sit and clap, and cheer me on, he was such great fun to be around. He'd take out his teeth and pull faces, and when we would be out, he was always first up on the dancefloor.  
My greatest memory was on holiday in Spain a few years back where we took him into a karaoke disco bar, and the Full Monty song 'you can leave your hat on' came on.  Well, up he jumped and started shaking his booty and as the song went on, he started to unbutton the shirt, just as Mary clapped eyes on him and flew in from outside and dragged him out by the scruff of the neck - the whole place just fell into a rapture of laughter, whistles, clapping - it was hilarious, and we still speak and chuckle about it today (I don't think Mary spoke to him for days after, as she was embarrassed by it, but to us, it made our holiday. He was just a great sport all around).  
I will miss a bowl of Uncle Johnny's chilli, he made the best chilli ever! 
He has left such a stamp on so many people's hearts and I will always hold fond memories of him close in my heart, and whenever I think of him, I will always smile xx
