    John..... at my first wedding in Gretna Green, you were my Best Man During the numerous pub crawls around 'Accy', you were my 'wing man' Drinking multiple bottles of red wine watching England beat Germany 5-1 on TV whilst the Battle sisters washed up in the kitchen, you were my 'alibi man' For the 'beer run' to Calais we only listened to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr etc etc, you were the cars 'music man' To celebrate your 40th in Prague I remember the night time fun ;-). After all you were the 'birthday man' Memories that will remain with me forever. Your dry sense of humour made you a funny guy to listen to and to read on social media. You will be missed by many. Friends and family alike. Rest in Peace.
