It is with great sadness that I must inform the membership that John Gutteridge has passed away following a long battle with cancer. John was the Senior Clerk at Furnival Chambers for many years. He was a staunch supporter of the IBC, having served on the Management Committee and the Bar Council Remuneration Committee and in later years was appointed a Vice-President.
The IBC, on behalf of its members, offers its sincere condolences to John’s family at this very sad time.
Please see the note below from his family in regards to funeral arrangements.
As you may or may not know, John sadly passed away last Thursday evening after a brave year and a half battle against bile duct cancer.
You are invited to celebrate his life with us on Wednesday 17th July, 10:40am at North East Surrey Crematorium, Cemetery Lodge, Lower Morden Lane, Morden, SM4 4NU.
The wake will be held at Wimbledon Rugby Football Club, Beverley Meads, Barham Road, Wimbledon, SW20 0ET from 11:45am onwards.
Please wear something bright and colourful. There will be family flowers only – should you wish to, donations can be made in cash on the day or online here to AMMF – The Cholangiocarcinoma Charity.
Julie, Chloe and Alissa
