Very sad to hear of the loss of such a well respected man.
I have been a hidden member of uksignboards.com for the past couple of years – simply using this terrific site as a source of reference for the industry I find myself involved with.This is my first ever post.
Although Mr Childs and myself were complete strangers – I always read with great interest the helpful and informative responses he offered to the other UKSB members questions that had been posted.
After reading all of the many tributes for Mr Childs – I believe UKSB member Martin Cole, who referred to him as ‘The Godfather of UKSB’ – has described him perfectly…
May I offer my condolences to his family – and my sympathies to each of you who knew him personally.
R.I.P. Mr Childs.
thank you Darren,
very kind words,
For us that did know John personally,
you echo our thoughts, from a non personal perspective,
it only goes to validate what a good geezer he was
