Our friend Roy Coomber in Bristol England reports on the death of stained glass artist John Hayward. The Spring 2004 issue of Stained Glass Quarterly has an article I wrote about John which discusses his stained glass work in England, especially the Great West Window at Sherborne Abbey. He and Doris were very accommodating in providing information, photos, etc. about John and his work, which preceded
the SGAA visit to England where John very kindly met the group at Sherborne Abbey. He brought along some of his preliminary and advanced sketches of the west window. He was a wonderful talent, and I remember John Kebrle and Crosby Willet extolling the virtues of his designing and painting style.
