    So sorry to hear this. A very funny man who could really write a tale well.

    I never met him but enjoyed his stories in the early months that we had a motorhome (pre-Fun days). I didn't realise he had died.

    I never met Pusser but enjoyed reading his book and his posts.
    He was a member on Fun some time ago I believe.
    Sad to hear of his passing,
    R.I.P. Pusser.

    Pusser RIP
    It is with great sadness to inform you of the passing of one of Motorhome Facts National Treasures. Our beloved Pusser.

    There is a link to the official obituary in the Bucks Herald below but Pusser (John) passed away peacefully at home on Friday 13 November 2015.

    Pusser was one of the very early members on our forum and over the years kept many of us entertained with his often eye watering humour and stories about his trips and adventures. Indeed it was Pusser’s way of writing which shaped the tone of my own blogs over the years.

    He touched so many far and wide with his humorous accounts of his trips away, the epic fails and his encounters with people he met along the way. One of his funniest lines (for me) was his wife shouting at him to slow down in France (Pussers Report Part 3) “Slow down! - you are doing more than 50 Rappels”. http://forums.The Dark Side/images/smilies/biggrin.gif “How many Rappels are you doing?” has become the norm in our van now.

    Sadly I never got to meet Pusser and I don’t think many did but I felt like I knew him. We kept in touch by email and on the forums and often traded stories about work (he also worked in IT) but mainly just laughs really. I knew he was ill and wanted to find out what had become of him so with the help of Spykal and Erneboy I manged to track down his daughter Sherie who (after establishing I wasn’t a stalker / nutter) kindly agreed for me to write an obituary for him on here.

    Pusser could go on a bit in his stories but I never got board of reading them and he was one of those posters that as soon as you saw a topic started by him or a reply in a thread your face would light up and you would smile with the anticipation of reading what he had posted.

    He also wrote a brilliantly funny book (Pussers Progress) for kindle which I would encourage you to download. It might raise some cheer in the gloomy months ahead. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pussers-Prog...ssers+Progress

    Thankfully his accounts on here have been preserved for all time. I have over the last few days been scouring the archives back to 2004 and have included some links below to some of his most memorable threads. There is enough there to keep you going until Spring! http://forums.The Dark Side/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Please feel free to post any of yours. I will be sending Sherie a link to this thread so hopefully the family can enjoy them also.

    Rest in Peace Pusser me old mate. Gone but not forgotten. Thanks for all the laughs!

    Truly saddened to hear this, never had the pleasure of meeting him but had much laughing reading his tales.

    An old school character, they are getting thinner on the ground by the year.
