Paul wrote: ‘My dear brother-in-law, John Eastman, has passed away. Having known each other for more than 50 years, it is a very sad time for me and our families.’

‘Johannes was a great man. One of the nicest and smartest people I’ve been lucky enough to know in my life. Not only did he help me massively in my business dealings as my lawyer, but as a friend he was hard to beat.

‘His sense of humor always shone through in everything he did and his devotion to his family was supreme. We had so many fun times together over the years, but when it came time to be serious, he was unbeatable.
