Tribute :We were so sorry to hear the very sad news so long after Johnny’s passing. Johnny had been re doing our pool deck, and was a n absolute gentleman to deal with. He tackled every detail with perfection and enthusiasm, and his sense of humour and positive nature was always appreciated. He had a passion it seemed for everything he did! No doubt, he is greatly missed by family and friends. Wishing comfort to all in the wonderful memories he left you.
