  1. John or the Pom as he was known at Forbes Vineyards/ Zilzie

    Such a sad loss to a tireless worker and friend, who gave his all in anything and everything did for us and our families.

    With his creativity and work in and around all our gardens, we will still see his efforts stand for generations too come, particularly his sculptures.

    He will also be remembered for his jokes and cheeky quick whit. That made even the politically correct smile and giggle.

    Thank-you John

    Love Ian (Dec),Ros, Steven, Andrew, Joanne and Families.. ___________________________________
