    RIP Johnny Aitch

    Hi all,

    It is with great sadness that I have to inform you all of the passing of Johnny Harrop who used the forum username Johnny Aitch on the OVF forum for many years.

    Johnny sadly passed away at the age of 52 earlier this week.

    I personally have many fond memories of "Aitch" and his many contributions to this forum over the years. I always got on well with Johnny personally and I will definitely miss his posts. He was a key character on this forum for many years and I am sure his posts informed and entertained many of you.

    My thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time. I am attempting to obtain contact details so we can pass on the sympathies of the OVF community.

    If you like to share a memory or post a tribute to Johnny Aitch please use this thread to do so.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Johnny Harrop AKA Johnny Aitch RIP Forever Valiant

    I thought I hadnt seen him for some time.... we disagreed about a lot of things but pleasantly with no acrimony... I will miss our debates.
    Different angles of vision with passion but not aggression.

    Sad news

    Always came across as a nice guy, who argue to ends of the earth to make you think more about what you were saying. We agreed on some things, disagreed on others. But his posts were thought-provoking and interesting. I thought I hadn't seen him for a while on here.

    Sad times. All the best to his family.

    Hi Scoob

    John was born and bred in Norton, lived in Smithyfield Road, just above the Sterling. His mum and my mum were lifelong friends. He was 1 of 3, his sister sadly died at a young age, leaving a young family, so John's only living relative is a brother now

    Such sad news

    Oh dear, how sad.

    I wasn't aware he was unwell but he never failed to inform and entertain me on here over the years. He was a true Renaissance Man and contributed intelligently to a lot of threads on a range of diverse topics. One of the best contributors, for me, bar none. It's very upsetting to hear that and it has taken me completely by surprise.

    I feel quite upset about tbis news even though I never met the bloke, but that's a measure of his status on here I suppose.

    My thoughts are with his family and close friends.

    I knew John from a young boy. My mum and John's mum were lifelong friends, starting at school until his mum passed away a few years back who we always referred to as 'Aunty' and as I have said earlier he was 1 of 3 children. Unfortunately, his one and only sister died young and his dad since. John and his wife used to take his mum and mine out, even taken them on holiday.Since the passing of his mum John and his lovely wife have always kept in contact.
    John's passing has left his brother as the only living relative now.
    Thoughts are with Eileen, John's wife and Brian, John's brother.
    Such sad news. John was a lovely, kind man who will, I'm sure, be sadly missed by those who knew and loved him.
