Albert Beckett.
This from his friend and fellow Wintonian.

John Valentine 1 942-2013 John was always up for a laugh and involved with the school plays. He was a great family man and husband to his wife Barbara, children Jonathan and Keeley, and he loved his grandchildren. He was always pulling stunts and telling jokes and anyone who got to know him would instantly like him. He attended the grand reunion in 2003 at old Trafford and would have been at the reunion at Salford stadium this year, but for ill health, I spoke with him on the phone, he was sorry he would not be able to make it. John had a brother Albert. John sadly passed away at the Christie hospital, a very sad day for all his family, relatives and many friends.

Paul Griffin (1981).
