An Extraordinary Life

John Oliver

John, as also known as Ollie or Joliver, was born with no hands, and only one good foot. Despite these challenges he became an artist, a chef, a horticulturist, a sailor and tug captain of ‘Hobbit’ on the Medway in Kent.

We were friends for over 40 years.

His life was an inspiration to anyone who met him.

Welcome to his story …..
