John Cullen

I wish to let the people of Reardon Smith Forum know about the passing away of my Dad, John Cullen. I know he's posted on this forum over the last few years but we don't know log on details. I'm hoping you would be able to post in the obituaries to let everyone know.
John served his last years at sea with Reardon Smith. He was Chief Engineer. There are pictures of him on the Amparo (page 4).
He had a 16 month battle starting with a rare form of cancer and sadly passed away peacefully on the 6th February 2018. He had received excellent care along the way at Christies, Clatterbridge and Arrowe Park hospitals.
The funeral is to be held at 3.20pm Tuesday 20th February 2018 at Thornton Crematorium, Merseyside followed by a gathering at Netherton British Legion Club.
On behalf of the family and myself, thank you. Dave Cullen. Posted on the forum 17 February 2018.

How sad is that? John's dry wit and humour will be dearly missed on the Forum. From Eric, John Cann and myself, our deepest and sincerest condolences go out to Dave, John's wife and all of his family. RIP John Cullen. Mike Jones. Posted on the forum 17 February 2018.

John and I worked quite a lot together while on the Amparo and found him a good friend. There was Wynn Evans, John and myself C/E, C/E/2?E and 2/E. I give my condolenses to John' wife and sons at their loss. RIP John. Tex Graham-Russell. Posted on the forum 19 February 2018.

Very sorry to hear of the passing of an old RSL shipmate, who posted on here quite often and my thoughts are with the family at this sad time. Graham Mapplebeck. Posted on the forum 19 February 2018.

Sorry to here that John lost his long battle against cancer. I still have vivid memories of John all those years ago on the Amparo. David Thomson. Posted on the forum 20 February 2018.

I sailed with John on two ships and always found him to be a dedicated Engineer, John was "the OTHER JC" although neither of us could work miracles!! Rest in peace, shipmate. John Cann. Posted on the forum 21 February 2018.
