Paul and Luke and family, my heartfelt sympathies for your lost brother. He was your big brother, but was also our collective big brother the times we were together. I will never forget those treasured memories. Always with a camcorder, or a wise word to give. Rest In Peace, John O'Connell.

To Luke, Paul and Family. John was wiser than his age and always a gentleman. His kind and caring demeanor always put us all at ease in those younger years. He was a true friend to many and will be sadly missed. Rest well John our friend.

Don and l have very fond memories of John in our Altona days. It was a pleasure teaching with you John at Altona Primary School. Lots of fun times at our craft and card nights, staff parties and camping trips away to Omeo, Millawa and Warrnambool. Rest in peace my dear friend. Your gentleness, dry whit and humour will always be remembered.
