Vale John Fordham UPDATED: Funeral Details

A Requiem Mass to celebrate John Fordham’s life will be offered in St Francis of Assisi Church, 457-459 Oxford Street, Paddington on Friday, November 15, 2019 at 12 noon.

2GB presenter Ben Fordham has lost his dad to throat cancer.

Fordham finished his afternoon program earlier than normal last week to spend time with his dad in his last days.

Only last month, Ben was proud to have his dad sitting at his ACRAs table to see him collect his ACRA for best talk presenter.

“I’ve brought my dad here with me tonight because my dad has supported me from day one,” he told radioinfo on the night.

John Fordham AM passed away on Sunday at Sacred Heart Hospice Darlinghurst, aged 75.  He is survived by his wife Veronica and his three children.

John worked in PR for Qantas and later began a talent agency business which represented a range of famous sportspeople and had radio stars Alan Jones and John Laws on its books.

Ben is John and Veronica’s first son. Ben’s brother John now runs the talent business and Ben’s sister is an artist. 

RIP John Fordham. Condolences from all of us at radioinfo to Ben and his family.
