Jeremy Collins, Farrell Heyworth director, says: “John loved and was proud to work in the property sector and was a massive part of creating Farrell Heyworth, having started as a branch manager in December 1995 and becoming a director in 2002.  John was known throughout the industry as a hardworking, honest, kind leader and friend, in John’s words we will ‘crack on’ as he would have wanted.”
