It is with great sadness that we have recently learnt of the sad and unexpected death of John Farndon , a much loved and respected local gentleman who was Chair of the Friends between 1997-2000.
John Farndon was chairman of FBHP from 1997 to 2000. His funeral at Hanworth Crematorium on 23 December 2016 was attended by many local people, including representatives from Probus and The Hampton Society, acknowledging the service he had given to his community.
Sheila Farndon was well supported by her family who made moving contributions to the farewell ceremony. We heard anecdotes about John’s life, his career as a chemist and patent examiner, and his great enthusiasm for foreign travel.
After serving as Chairman, John had continued to attend our meetings and functions regularly. We will all miss his cheery presence.
