John “Timpers” Timperley was a man of many parts. He was a keen sportsman, enabling him to do his National Service as a physical fitness instructor. He played in the national badminton team, and was later a keen golfer and squash player. He ran a highly successful insurance broking business, though he later confessed to hating insurance: a business partner tells how he coaxed her into the business by telling her she could share his office, only to tell her subsequently that she could have the whole of it.
It was only when his three children had grown up that he was able to devote himself to writing and music. He wrote many song lyrics and plays (including those listed below). His greatest labour of love was his musical, Kennedy: The Thousand Days, with music by Richard Storry, which was showcased in Jermyn Street Theatre in 1999 and produced at Hampton Hill Playhouse in 2002.
