John was born on 24th September 1947 in London.
In March 2001 he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
Prior to developing MND John was very fit and healthy and had
enjoyed cycling and running for many years. He was also a talented
musician and songwriter and lived in Milton Keynes.
During 2002 John's condition slowly deteriorated and by April
2003 he felt the quality of his life was so poor that he contacted
the Swiss charity Dignitas and asked them to help him die.
John died, age 55, in Zurich on 26th May 2003.
This site records and celebrates his life and his music.
