Obituary: John Macmillan FCIOB

John Macmillan was a well-known character in construction and spent his latter career working for Bovis and Mace in London.

He was particularly proud of his involvement with Broadgate, Cable & Wireless’s HQ in Red Lion Square and Waterloo/Liverpool Street Stations. The Fleetwood wine bar in Broadgate at the time was nicknamed ‘The Fleetwood Mac’ as the favoured watering hole for John and his colleagues.

He was a proud Scot, member of the Caledonian Club, a lover of jazz and fond of painting. One of his greatest achievements was raising over £1m for the children’s services at St Bart’s Hospital in London through the generosity of many who attended the Trade Contractors Burns Suppers.

John died in November 2020 aged 83 and now rests peacefully with his wife Betty in Rippingale.
