With deep sadness, we announce the passing of dearly beloved husband, father and grandfather after a difficult struggle with Lewy Body dementia. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Gillian, of 55 years, his daughters Katherine and Brigitte, and grandchildren, Claire, Max and Sam.
