John Frederick Shrimplin
John Shrimplin had three sons and a daughter, and actively encouraged his children to share his motor cycling interests, even to the extent of building a miniature motor cycle in the loft at home during his spare time.
Peter became a care worker looking after people with difficulties. Paul is a self-employed plumber, and Sarah lives in Hong Kong where she is a marketing manager.
On 2nd March 1970 John Shrimplin was patrolling on his motor cycle at Epping, when he was struck and killed by a car which swerved into him from the opposite carriageway.
