John has been a member of Carnethy since 1996 ad had taken part in many Mountain Marathons. He was a regular on the Esk Run until a couple of years ago.
There will be a non-religious funeral for him at Mortonhall crematorium at 10am on Saturday 9th December, followed by an informal gathering from1-3pm at Alien Rock, 8 Pier Place Edinburgh EH6 4LP.
Our sympathies go to Margaret and his family.
