Vale John Shugg
On Tuesday the 25th of January the world changed forever as our beloved Ga-Ga, Dad, Husband and Friend gently left our lives.
A gentleman through and through, John was the soul and guiding light of our family business. His passion for the Western Industry together with his wisdom and foresight in his late eighties took us from the brick and mortar store so many of you would have visited to our new online saddlery. His work ethic and desire to deliver the best possible gear at the best possible price to you, our customers and friends is what we focus on every single day.
John has lived a full and long life, and even at almost 91 he still came to work every day until just a couple of weeks ago. The baton has been passed on and we will work hard to fulfil his desire to build the best online Western Saddlery Down Under.
We are heart broken, our world does not feel right, but we will carry on his legacy and work hard to bring to fruition the plans and dreams John had set out for McDonald’s Saddlery.
Please be patient with us during this time as we grieve. We will continue to work as usual, but some days we might take a little longer to do some things like return emails or send out tracking numbers.
Rest in Peace John.
