John, who ‘hated funeral black’ had requested prior to his passing that invitees wear bright colours, and asked the they give to charity rather than supply flowers.

John’s son told the congregation, ‘He lived a tremendous life. I love you dearly dad. I am proud to be your son. 

‘I miss you already’. 

Kerri-Anne’s Studio 10 friends Sarah Harris, Angela Bishop and Joe Hildebrand were in attendance, as were Richard Wilkins and Deborah Hutton.
