It is with deep regret that we share the news of the passing of Dr John K Gosnold.

John was a past President of the OH Association (2011) and he also enthusiastically organised the bi-monthly luncheons for many years.

Members of the OH and Hymers College pass on their condolences to his family.

We would like to share with you some of the messages that we have received…

"He was a contemporary of mine at Hymers, and a client for some years. One of the most energetic and enthusiastic young men I know, and even retirement could not stop him!  A great loss to the community."

"I played with John at the OH Golf Day on a number of occasions and he was always great company."

"John was an outstanding A&E medic and my wife Jo had many interactions with him. He was the finest practitioner of his time."

"I am very sorry to hear this. John helped me when I was president and did a lot for the school and OHA. He was also a friend of my late uncle John Robinson."

"I know you will pass on our condolences generally and please add mine to that."

"He was a really decent president and good guy."

"As the man in charge of the A & E Department at HRI for many years he inspired many colleagues and helped them save lives. He also spent his spare time repairing rugby players. He was a great OH and ambassador for the school."
