Just heard the sad news that John passed away yesterday after he lost his battle with cancer my thoughts are with his loved ones especially Mark his brother.

John was a great person funny ,clever,thoughtful sometimes cheeky always gave me advice about life and the universe he was my neighbour a few years ago and i always enjoyed going round his for a drink and chat ,he would play me one of his songs he was working on or show me something new on his computer or play a tune on his sitar or metal drums.

John was a fan of ''Tales of the Buddha before he got enlightened'' that i drew he came up with my nick name Johnny Horney which i used when the strip was printed in Northern Lightz adult humour comic

this picture was painted by his brother Mark Burrell it's called SAILING INTO THE SUN John was a hang glider who loved the freedom to fly .

I'll never forget you John
