He was a follower of Portsmouth Football Club and enjoyed watching them play at Fratton Park especially when they were in the Premiership. He loved to give you a rub whenever his team played well and what a great day he had in 2008 when they won FA Cup Final against Cardiff City by the only goal of the game!
Many of his old Needwood friends are expected at his funeral and as you can see from one of the pictures below, he was a very popular, joyful and friendly person to be with, always has a big smiling grin. We will miss him.
