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.

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.
