Joann is from Hobart, and John originally from London. John migrated to Australia in 1971. Joann and John met in Perth in late-2017.
Joann and John now reside together in Geraldton and both love to travel. In the covid-19 days that meant within Western Australia, and as a result a Motohome was purchased in June 2020 to facilitate this. However, they really enjoy overseas travel, especially to destinations like Vietnam and Thailand and it's been lovely being able to get back to them.

John has three fine children from his marriage with Carol (who passed away in 2017): Andrew (1974), Simon (1975) and Lisa (1978), with two granddaughters from each of them. There is more information about John and Carol and their children here.
