  2. The Pepper Family would like to express their heartfelt condolences to the Britt Family at the loss of dear John. John was a dearly loved member of the Torquay community and a great friend to our family. He often expressed so much love and pride for his family. Often, he mentioned that his goal was to make it to 90 years old – he made it! His companionship and comradery will be greatly missed. Much love to you all.

  3. What a gentleman, John we be sadly missed on his visits to Torquay and our catch up’s for a cup of tea. John lived a full life and didn’t want to miss out on any occasion. A real family man. It has been a pleasure to know him.
