What a shock to read that John had passed away. So many happy memories from the time you were our neighbor on Longford Dr.
I remember his piping , his band, the Longhorn Inn, and his quick wit and sense of humour. He loved his family and was always there for them and for his friends. Like us he was proud to be Scottish.
He will be missed. Our deepest sympathies to you Grace, John, and Andy and your families.
He will remain with you always in your hearts and every time you tell a story about him.
Gail, Donald, Derek and Alan Campbell.
