Remembering John Waugh
Dad's fitness and health improved from Dr Bethell's help, so much so, Dad ran with Hugh in The Sunday Times Fun Run, where they raised funds for St John's Ambulance.
Dad went on to have a long and fulfilled life, living to the age of 87, with his wife of 52 years, two children, one foster child and eight grandchildren. He was a football coach and manager both here and in America and also taught science in a local school for many years. His passions in life were his family, spending time with them whether it was on holidays, out for dinner or supporting the Grandchildren in all their activities.
His hobbies were watching Hampshire Cricket Club at the Ageas Bowl, supporting Saints and playing golf, all of which he did long after retirement.
We owe this to the hard work and dedication of Dr Bethell and his team. Therefore, it is an honour for us to select the Alton Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre as his charity. We will be celebrating John's life on the 6th November 2023 9:30 at Wessex Vale Crematorium, West End and then at the Robin Smith Suite at the Ageas Bowl, West End.
Dad. Thank you for everything. Thank you for being an amazing Dad, Father in Law and Grandad.
So many wonderful memories. Love you forever.
Sarah, Ro, Ellie & Thomas xx
Money Received at Johns Celebration of Life
We would like to thank all those that came to celebrate John’s life and donated to a cause so close to our hearts.
Thank you xx
The Waugh Family
The Alton Cardiac Centre helped our family have 40 more years with John. Memories that we will treasure forever. We hope the little money we raise in Johns honour will go towards another family being able to make memories with their loved ones. Thank you x
Once Grandad bought a pigs heart from the butchers so I could take it into junior school to look at the chambers and parachute valves as we were learning about it in class. Looking back I doubt the teachers were pleased about having to keep it in the staff room fridge!
Joe and Ellie
I was privileged to know John \"Reasonable\" Waugh. It was very fitting to toast his life in the Robin Smith Suite today. The same venue as my wedding reception in 2007... chosen on his recommendation. He was a very wise man and a good friend.
Zane & Allison
Only knew you for a short time through cricket but always enjoyed our conversations and your enthusiasm for the game.
Will be missed.
RIP John - you will be sadly missed by everyone- family, friends and others that new you but you\'ve made wonderful memories with them and these will never be forgotten ❤
I didn’t know John very well but I know Shirley. So I know John loved his family. They are all going to miss him, but he has left them with so many happy memories that I hope will bring them comfort.
What runners we were! Hugh
My lovely grandad, this money can\'t bring you back but I hope it helps another grandad out there have years longer with their grandchildren. I\'m so very grateful for all the years I had with you. We miss you already. xxx
John was an inspiration to many people and I have many great memories of him especially teaching together in Southampton. I’m glad he lived to a good age. All who knew him will miss him. RIP John Cx
John you were a true gentleman. You will be missed. Xx
