Whilst he was diving with the Metropolitan Police Sub-Aqua Club off the Sussex coast, a colleague got into difficulties; Sergeant Gilbert, an experienced diver, remained with him, sharing his air and assisting him to the surface but as a result John himself suffered decompression sickness and died the following day. 

John joined in 1980, and worked with the Edgeware Child Abuse Investigation Team. 

He was survived by his wife and his adult son and daughter.
