11 November 1953 to 5 April 2020
A man of emotions
Of guesses at life
Watering the strife
To negate the hate
And blossom the love
- Understanding, John Passant
Sadly John passed away peacefully on 5 April with Patricia at his side.
Husband to Patricia, father to Michael and Louise and brother of Paul.
Passionate challenger of injustice, radical activist and socialist, prolific and powerful writer and poet.
Touching many lives, loving, helpful and much loved, he leaves a great legacy but a huge hole in the universe and our lives.
Many thanks to his dear friends who so enriched his life.
When he shall die,Take him and cut him out in little stars,And he shall make the face of heaven so fineThat all the world will be in love with night,And pay no worship to the garish sun.
- Romeo and Juliet
