John Hill passed away on the 6th November 2016 after a period of illness which kept him from singing for most of this year.
John joined Men in Harmony early in 1997 and quickly became an important chorus member, taking on club responsibilities of Secretary in 1998 and 1999, then taking the role of President in 2000 and 2001. John further served as Secretary from 2003 to 2008 and again in 2010.

John also took on the important role of Bass Section Leader and was always a welcoming face to new Bass recruits.  One Bass recently commented that when he joined the bass section... With a twinkle in his eye John uttered the words, "Welcome to the elite section of the Chorus."

John was an active Bass in Men In Harmony and the foundation of a number of senior quartets, Pheonix, Late Harvest and Quarks. John also ‘moonlighted’ and was an active member of Southside Harmony and was also their bass section leader.

In April 2016 John was awarded the honour of Men In Harmony Life membership.
