Today, friends and family held a two minute silence on the beach near where he worked.

It was a chance for family to come together to remember him as current restrictions mean many will not be able to attend his funeral.

Our beloved son, John Alan passed away doing exactly what he loved, working on the farm, working on the oyster beds, just living. We have many happy memories of our lives together so we are comforted by that.
