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

Well what can I say about this character only that anytime I was in Birmingham and met him he was always in top form and made me laugh a true gentleman also. My heart is with Mary and all the family at this very very sad time. So sleep well Johnny you were a great dancer too btw. Night God bless ❤️❤️

hi dad
off to see luthur vandross tomorrow be emotional but happy memories. i will always dance with my father!!!

love you and miss you so so much xxx

Dance With My Father Back when I was a child Before life removed all the innocence My father would lift me high And dance with my mother and me And then spin me around 'til I fell asleep Then up the stairs he would carry me And I knew for sure I was loved If I could get another chance Another walk, another dance with him I'd play a song that would never, ever end How I'd love, love, love To dance with my father again When I and my mother would disagree To get my way I would run from her to him He'd make me laugh just to comfort me Then finally make me do just what my mama said Later that night when I was asleep He left a dollar under my sheet Never dreamed that he Would be gone from me If I could steal one final glance One final step, one final dance with him I'd play a song that would never, ever end 'Cause I'd love, love, love To dance with my father again Sometimes I'd listen outside her door And I'd hear how my mama cried for him I pray for her even more than me I pray for her even more than me I know I'm praying for much too much But could You send back the only man she loved? I know You don't do it usually But, dear Lord, she's dying To dance with my father again Every night I fall asleep And this is all I ever dream

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”

Love

Claire Reiss Chloe and Amy xx
