    i had some very sad news whilst at redferns .it is with great sadness that today ,my good freind
    john thomas has pssed away ,john had been getting over cancer,but has been getting worse over the pssed weeks ,
    john was like a second dad to me and was the reason i took up field target shooting he was also the reason i have my own shoot as the amount of work we did together and at his age was staggering .
    john was well known in the wafta region and made some of the away shoots with me .he always supported me and pushed me to always do better ,
    john leaves behind his wife iris and daughter and grand children

    john my friend rest in peace you will be missed

    your good friend

    mike

    John I never had the chance to meet you and for that I am sorry, but I have met Mike and I'm sure he made you proud. Rest in peace fella, rest in peace.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting John personally, but he has always been one of the "Names" you just kind if know in this sport. So sad to hear this news, my sincere condolences to his family.
