The RNLI saves lives at sea.

John Hunter

Also known as: Bill.

This page has been formed to remember my Grandad, who was a loving, caring person, who was dedicated to his family and Wife, my Gran Mary.
They spent most fo their holidays in Swanage where i think they became more aware of the RNLI with the sound of the bell calling the lifeboat for a stricken vessel. They both loved their time down in Swanage with the beach hut, sitting in the sun reading their books and making the most of the peace a quiet together and then enjoying visiting the restaurants to enjoy a meal. Originally my Grandad was in the navy, where he decided that after watching 2 ships get hit either side of his, that he would recognise the fact that he was lucky to be alive and that the RNLI risk there lives on a daily basis to save the lives of others. He then joined the Poice force where, he was a sergeant in St Ives. He spent 30 years in service for the police force, where he played a lot of football. He loved his football and always looked out for the scores of Kingstonians, Oxford and his favoured team Arsenal.
Grandad, we miss you, we love and we will always be thinking of you.
Love you loads
Ben, Bev Becca and Ella
