A simply great fella. Always enjoyed his company and have many many great memories of him that I will treasure. As I have said to others over the last few days, in 45 years as a friend, he is one of the select few people that I have never ever heard anyone say a bad word against, which speaks volumes about the man he was and the affection and respect in which he was held by all who knew him. Our thoughts and hearts go out to you all for your loss. I will never forget him and will remember him with love and affection. Gerry and Julie.
