My inspiration, A wonderful man, never forgotten


03 April 2012

Only just heard the tragic news. Mr T has been my inspriration through my life. He believed in me, he encouraged me to be the best that I could. I remember him taking a school bus full of kids to do the three peak challenge in his native Yorkshire, with his own wife and three daughters. I looked upto Mr T like no other man, a real mans man with a stubborn never say die attitude, but at the same time, a man with a heart of gold. You will live forever in everybodys heart Mr T. I for one will never forget you. RIP my hero.

A true inspiration

Mr. Thompson (Tommo) was a true inspiration to all that he met. He taught me so much more than rugby. His influence has affected my whole life. A truly great man. RIP John.

A unique individual


18 February 2012

Probably the most genuine, kind-hearted and compassionate person I've ever met - I think the turnout at John's funeral showed how many lives he touched, and the high regard he was held in. For sure, he would have been proud of his family that day - the readings by his daughters moved many, myself included, to tears. RIP Tommo.

To not only a 'top bloke' but a great teacher and friend.

Death may rob of us the person but memories remain forever - thank you for providing so many good ones.
