06/03/1942 – 21/05/2020
Dad lived in Durley in the West Midlands, which is his home town where he was born. He moved to North Wales in 1995 to be close to me which is where I lived with my children.
He had his own painting and decorating business which he loved before he retired early due to ill health. He loved fishing which he carried on doing all his life. His wife died in 2010 of cancer and he never really was the same after that as they had a lovely relationship being married for 46 years. He caught covid in his care home in May and it took him within days.
He was a very loving dad and grandad and we all miss him so much. He was very wise and his little ‘pearls of wisdom will stay in my head forever. I spent every day with him for 8 years after mom died making sure he was okay. He had to go into a care home 18 months ago for his safety due to dementia and me having to work so I couldn’t be there 24 7. He has left a huge hole in all our hearts and we are hoping to give him awake when we are allowed due to covid restrictions.
