Default John Kyte

I've just heard that John Kyte died last night.

Such very sad news. He'd been struggling with his health for a few years.

John's influence in the stationary engine world was huge, particularly back in the 1970s and 1980s. It was a pleasure to have known him and to learn from him.

Rest well my old friend.

Sometimes it hits, sometimes it misses ...........

That is very sad news, John was very well known in the hobby and a forum member.

Sad news indeed, another of the big names from the early days of the hobby gone.

RIP John.

Cheerio for now John, I hope you find a nice big garden up there.
I will treasure the memories made in Market Lavington, always.
I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance.
