Paying tribute to John Butterworth who played a key role in the early days of Pilotlight

In memory of John Butterworth, Pilotlight Trustee (2003 to 2015), member of the Finance Committee and the very first working group Pilotlight ever had: The Operations Committee. The Operations Committee, a group of five, met fortnightly with Fiona Halton, Chief Executive in the very early days. Fiona remembers John as a driving force. That group discussed, debated, drew up flowcharts penned by John, and came up with the working model for the Pilotlight we know now, publishing it in the Summer of 2003: nearly 19 years ago. Hon John William Blackstock Butterworth 1952-2019.
