AQ John Hamilton

It's with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague AQ. John has been a massive part of the community family for many years and will be sorely missed. 

 

We will of course let you know of any updates about his service as soon as we know.

Re: AQ John Hamilton

Terrible news, I was aware that he was very unwell, but I was hoping he would win in the end.

Re: AQ John Hamilton

I think it's safe to say we were all hoping he'd pull through @Keith_Beddoe.

Re: AQ John Hamilton

I'm shocked. It's only a few weeks since I had lunch with John, delighted to find him in such fine fettle for a lad who had endured years of tough medical treatment. He was very keen to get the photo which he asked me to post here. On the face of it, he was showing us how well he was coping but perhaps he knew more than he was letting on and was saying farewell. Difficult to tell with someone so positive, so determined to make the best of it whatever his illness threw at him.

 

John was very proud of his heritage and keen to share his enthusiasm for local history. I was enriched by the insightful outings he gave me in and around Leeds, sadly far fewer than we would have enjoyed had it not been for his poor health. Sharing just a tiny part of life with John was immensely rewarding; those close to him have lost a giant.

 

Ta ta, mate.
