John Speirs
08 January 1941 - 09 February 2016
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of John Speirs who passed away peacefully on 9 February 2016

On Tuesday we lost a beautiful man, after several years of dealing with major health issues. He gave everything in his fight against cancer but it wasn't to be. He leaves behind a large loving family who were all with him when he passed. We have lost the Rock of our family. A warm, funny and caring man who you could turn to for anything. He was absolutely devoted to our mum for 52 years. He taught his children so much including skills that centred on how to avoid paying a tradesman “coz you could do it yourself"! His dry sense of humour could take you down in a flash but he was never hurtful with it. He was generous to a fault which was evident when he took 17 of us to Portugal last Easter for the best family holiday anyone could wish for. We miss him so much and can't quite believe he's gone. In the words of Des O'Connor’s One, Two, Three O'Leary (He bought Rosemary, his daughter, the single when she was 2!) "I will always love you even though we've gone our separate ways".

God Bless Dad, it was a privilege to have shared your life.
