  2. Finest gambling scrabble playing, floodlit croquet player, I have had the pleasure of knowing. I had the great fortune of spending time in his company learning some of life’s most important skills such as how to pour a glass of German bottled beer from great height and browsing Norfolk second hand book shops seeking out the correct version of the Oxford English Dictionary to buy. Unforgettable memories of a kind, thoughtful, generous and funny man.

  3. A sad loss of a remarkable, kind and gererous man with a mischievous sense of humour. I will never forget my first sight of the recycled calendars from past years on the office wall, carefully retained for re-use again when the day/date cycle returned.
    Moira and I send our sincere condolences to all the family.

    Richard & Moira Poole

  6. This message is very late, but I wanted to say I enjoyed meeting John Later in life and I doing a little bit of work with him. The eulogy and his life story was fascinating.
