He was a highly respected and cherished member of the firm and held in equally high esteem by his long-standing clients. John was a person who embodied both passion for his family and passion for his work. A bright, skilled and driven lawyer, whose warmth, kindness and compassion for others shone through, John will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his wife and two children.
