In loving memory of Victor Anthony who sadly passed away on 26th June 2020. A loving husband, Dad, GG and Opa was the most generous, kind and loving gentleman to us all. His infectious enthusiasm, positivity and love for life, shone through in everything he did, from his self- taught education and career in accounts in London & later Gloucestershire, to caring for his Mother at 18 years old as well as bravely emigrating to Canada & the USA and later to crew on a P&O Cruise ship tours, so he could find and see Mum again in Sydney, Australia. A true romantic. Dad also loved and was very passionate about soccer, the Arsenal, and taught us to enjoy the experience even if you lose! He also loved Running particularly 1/2 marathons, But his biggest achievement being the London Marathon - his determination was amazing and he did not stop grinning from ear to ear for about a year afterwards. Dad also enjoyed testing himself on cryptic crosswords, and experiencing live Music performances & shows treating us regularly to see some amazing west end shows, particularly musicals which he loved! He spread the magic and enriched our lives. We loved Dad so much, but know that he has gone to a better place now but we will miss him dearly. He went out with a bang - in true GG style and we will always hold his cheeky smile, eternal optimism and Sincere kindness and love for all his family and friends in our hearts 💕

I will always remember Uncle Vic from childhood memories of him sharing his travel experiences widening my eyes to the world for the person to go to tell of my achievements as I grew as the kind and caring person he always was.
