Good CWU man was John.

I worked with John for 25 years and had many a good laugh with him. The comments are correct he was a good Union man and a good work college ~ sadly missed.

John was saying to me.

"Conroy out of order no photos"

as far as I can remember, but maybe in more fragrant language

I remember John France, he was a top bloke with a cracking sense of humour, im sad to hear he died, when and how? his wife Rita was a gem.
