Bishop John was the Bishop of Chelmsford between 1986 and 1996 and had previously served as Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich (1978 to 1986) and Bishop of Stafford (1975-1978).  The thoughts and prayers of everyone at the Diocese of Chelmsford and Chelmsford Cathedral are with Bishop John’s wife Pat, his son Stephen and their wider family.
