John, who contributed extracts from the 'Western Mail' of the 1920s and
1930s to the Glamorgan and Monmouthshire lists for several years, died on
7th August this year quite suddenly but peacefully from pneumonia.

His widow has written to me
"I cannot begin to tell you the pleasure he got from his own, and other
people's family history especially as he had to give up his other hobbies."

He had arthritis in both hands, so typing out the extracts took him
significant time and effort. He was pleased that they were so well received
by list members.
