He was a respected individual who led an exemplary life, leaving an indelible mark on those around him. He was a retired professional, having devoted many years to his chosen career, and was highly esteemed by his colleagues and friends.\n\nJohn was predeceased by his beloved parents, Jim Rodgers and Sally Cade.
