Write a book fer God's sake, it would probably knock "fifty shades of grey" off the best sellers list.

Write a book ?,not a bad suggestion ,but like Lady Chaterlys Lover would be banned re the sexual content.
Some of the people who would be mentioned would  take me to court.
But apart from the romantic connections the depot was  very  well run.

Yes, quite a few people remember him especially since he starred in an award-winning film:

John passed away almost exactly 7 years ago, on the 17th January 2014:
