On September 2, 2022, John succumbed to an infection that had rapidly taken hold of his health, leading to his hospitalization following his General Practitioner’s (GP) recommendation.

John’s health decline commenced with unanticipated weight loss and a general feeling of illness. Concerned family and friends prompted him to consult a medical professional to address his condition.

Notably, John had been characterized as a physically fit and healthy individual by his close friend, James Vaughn.

The two friends had initially connected through their shared passion for football and had even embarked on journeys across the country to support their favorite team, Liverpool FC.

James Vaughn shared his memories with the Liverpool Echo, recounting, “We met playing for the Home and Bargains football team when we were kids and became best mates… We must have attended thousands of football matches together and he was a massive Red.”

The suddenness of John’s passing, especially considering his robust health and non-smoking status, deeply shocked James. John’s health decline began subtly, marked by a couple of weeks of sickness and weight loss.

After persuasion, John visited a doctor who swiftly arranged for his hospitalization.

Tragically, despite the medical intervention, John’s condition deteriorated over the span of ten days, ultimately leading to his demise.

James Vaughn received the unexpected call informing him of John’s passing, leaving him in disbelief.

**Honoring John’s Legacy through the Mez Foundation**

John’s legacy continues to live on through the heartfelt efforts of his football team, Home and Bargains, which has united to establish the Mez Foundation in his honor.

The foundation’s primary objective is to generate funds and support for local mental health charities, community organizations, and amateur football teams.

During his younger years, John had been an enthusiastic football player, having even played alongside the renowned Steven Gerrard during their shared time at Cardinal Heenan High School in West Derby.

James Vaughn reflects on the profound impact John had on people’s lives, stating, “John touched so many people’s lives and on the day of his funeral people could not get inside the building.

People were standing outside and it was a mark of how many people he touched.

John had the knack of being able to speak to anyone.” The void left by John’s absence is acutely felt by his loved ones, as his ability to connect with others is sorely missed.

In collaboration with the Mez Foundation, James Vaughn is spearheading an initiative to construct an all-weather football pitch named after John, aiming to further his friend’s passion for the sport.

As a tribute, on the anniversary of John’s passing, his friends are embarking on a significant endeavor – completing four marathons in three days to raise awareness and support for their cause.

For those interested in contributing to this meaningful effort, a Just Giving page has been set up to facilitate donations and aid in carrying forward John’s legacy.
