John Hefin's family said he died at home in Borth this morning. He's been suffering with cancer for some time.
Throughout his life, John had so much pleasure working in the world of television, film and the media. As a producer and director, he was proud of the chance to work alongside to much talent in Wales - both on and off screen. He spent a large part of his life educating and inspiring others - something that pleased him immensely.
His loss will be greatly felt - especially among his family - Elin, his children Dylan, Lowri and Meg and his brother Geraint, as well as with his many friends throughout Wales.
