John Townsend, G4ILY (SK)

It is with deep sadness I report that John Michael Townsend G4ILY is now at rest.

John passed away on 28 September, aged 69, at Barnabas House, Worthing. He was surrounded by his beloved family.

John’s interest in radio started as a child when his hobbies included wireless building.  It was no surprise when John went on to read Electronics and Manchester University and then completed his PhD.  On 1 Oct 1970, John moved to Steyning with his wife Elise and joined Eurotherm, where his technical roles were pivotal to the company’s future.

John is irreplaceable.  Nothing but good memories are held by everyone who ever knew him.
