No: 380 From: Graham WhitesidePosted: 1-2-2022
rose.jpg Farewell John Salmon
 Tony Wragg dropped us an email with the sad news of John's passing.

Sorry to have to inform everyone, John was rushed to hospital and died last Wednesday 19 1 22.

I've bumped into him quite a few times since he left BT, the last time was last year at Middlebrook getting my 2nd jab where he told me he was about to complete the 3 year engineering degree he started at Bolton Uni after leaving BT... A lovely guy, will be missed.

John worked for many years in the TVNSC Dial House until it closed. I think he moved to Maintenance after that before taking a redundancy package to study at university. He was only 59.

John's Funeral details:

Wednesday 2nd February at 11:00am
Overdale Crematorium
Overdale Drive
Chorley New Road

His BT friends and colleagues are invited after the service to:
Bar Lane Bowling Club
Bar Lane

A live webcast of John's funeral is available.

Watching webcast live and watch-again

If anyone is going to raise a glass to John at the club, can they email Tony Wragg directly or use our contact page so his family can arrange catering.

John Salmon, RIP. I worked, and laughed with John, he came into the TVNSC at Dial House on many occasions when he worked with the TVOB's outside TV broadcast team, later under the same umbrella we helped install maintain the then new digital TV network across the East, and West for the likes of the BBC, and Granada. The last time I spoke to John was at Oldham Ex, must have been 2015 just before I retired, John mentioned then that he wished to get back into further education, he sounded very enthusiastic, and had a plan...
