RIP John Demaine

I heard today that John Demaine has died. He worked so hard as Director, Commercial manager etc for Stanley and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. He'll be looking down on us on Saturday.
On Stanley On.

Such sad news, to my mind there's now only one person the new stand should be named after

Another one of the nicer guys just left the planet, worked with John over 50 years ago at Black and White on Hyndburn Rd. My sincere condolences to all his family. R.I.P. J.D.

Not a Stanley post ferret man, but what did Black and White produce?

Re: RIP John Demaine

Sad to hear about John although he had been suffering for some time, but as it has already been said it's a great pity he hadn't lived to see this great season out. No doubt he will keep an eye on us from up yonder. R.I.P. John it was great knowing you.

Re: RIP John Demaine

My condolences also to John's family. I liked John's style, laconic and unflappable, and he was always very helpful. I remember when I was putting together the pictoral history and I was in his smoke-filled portacabin with Dave Hargreaves, having just received a rant from Eric, who thought I was trying to profit from the club's name. John looked at me with a kind of 'don't worry he does that to everyone' look, and I was leaving he gave me a wink and a supportive arm on the shoulder and said, "I'll sort it out, Phil, don't worry." And sure enough, we had a launch in the clubhouse and we sold plenty of copies in the shop. After that we always had a chat whenever our paths crossed. A genuinely nice chap and a terrific club servant.
