Many a good time at the Labour Club with George !! Always there supporting, if we were ever short of players .. he'd dust off his Stanley Matthew's boots & get kitted up !! He'd say "You do the running .. if they get past you i'll nobble 'em !!"

A loving, caring and sweet grandfather...he always used to stick up for me when my dad started teasing me! He would get up with a newspaper and start beating my dad up until he said sorry! Not to mention the chocolate he used to sneak. I love you, emily ❤

Grandad,

Nobody could have ask for a better grandad and I'm sure I can speak on behalf of everybody in saying that we all feel immensely proud and lucky to have had you in our lives.

For always getting me out of fishing tangles to making sure Santa could get in at 5am every christmas morning I cant thank you enough.

Above all else I miss the seemingly little things that turned out to be the fondest memories.

Saying goodbye to you is hard but I'm sure your enjoying a cold one with Tess by your side. The world has lost a truly kind, amazing, selfless man.

Thank you again, it's been an honour.

Adam

We saw he was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So we put our arms around him
And whispered “George, it’s ok.”

With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away,
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

George, they broke the mould when they made you, thanks for the memories, they’ll last a lifetime.
It’s been an honour, sleep well.
Goodbye my friend.

David

Grandad,

I just can’t believe you’re not with us anymore, you’ll leave a huge hole in our lives that will never be able to be filled.

While you may not have won the lottery in the end, you made our lives rich with love, laughter and a lifetime of memories.

I can’t thank you enough for being the most amazing, caring and special grandad we could have asked for.

You’ll be missed so, so much, I hope wherever you are now they know how lucky they are to have you.

Love always,

Alanna, Kieran and Isaac xxxxx

He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.

His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Went unspoken too.

He was there.....A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.

A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that we called Dad ❤️
