Brad Wilson

In loving memory of my dad, best friend and hero. Thank you for always being there for me. I'll do everything I can to keep you proud of me and to keep my promise to look after mum, Mel & Alfie for you. James will also do his best to keep his promise to you, and teach Alfie all the things you wanted to teach him like Carpentry, model making, fishing and fixing things. I miss you so much it hurts and I feel lost without you. It was hard watching you go through what you did and knowing I couldn't make it better for you like you would make things better for me. I'm glad you had somewhere like Tapping House to help look after you towards the end. I know you were there for such a short space of time, but I know you liked it there, the room, the view you had out of your window of the lovely gardens and the amazing staff that helped look after you, aswell as your family & friends. I'm not going to say goodbye, just 'Until we meet again some sunny day' (Vera Lynn) Love you so much dad RIP xxxx

Hubby, Dad, Grandad, To the world you are just a person, but to us you are the world! You've been taken too soon and words can not express the sorrow that we feel. We miss you so much already and long to see you walk through the door, walking around the house, see you enjoying the half 10 Radio 2 quiz, see you tinkering with your latest project, see you sitting in the garden listening to the world through your little radio's with a cup of tea in hand, hearing your humour, we miss your presence and just in general hearing your voice. We hope that you will always be with us. You will always be on our minds and in our hearts. May you now rest in peace. Love you lots, Wifey, Heathy, Melly and Alfie xxxxxx

Wifey, Heathy, Melly and Alfie

Clare and Tony

I hope you're watching god's and legends of rock at the stadium in the sky


Things just won’t be the same without you. Thank you for making my beautiful cousin so happy for all these years. Sleep tight xxx


Never forget the look of pleasure when we fished and you caught the one in the picture or the look of horror one year when I poured you out a "Bronzey measure of whisky "felt more like a brother than a brother in law now you can catch as many big fish that you want and more to the point pain free sleep well David and rest in peace I am going to miss you.


Thank you for always being my very kind, helpful and special Uncle. Will miss you always. Lots of Love, Matty xxx


Will miss you little brother. Your kindness and compassion for others was outstanding. You were a great brother, husband, Dad, and Grandad. Thank you for being the wonderful person you grew up to be. Love you always xx


On behalf of all of David's cousins in the Southern Hemisphere - we send our condolences to Elaine and daughters. And to Wendy, Wayne and family and Kevin xxx


Such sad times taken far too soon. We will always be here for your family, sending them all our love n strength at this sad time 🥰

Carole, Dave and the Green family.

We remember a gentle and kind lad, who stayed with us in London with Wendy. Years later, you emerge the spitting image of your dad, compassionate, kind, gentle, funny and very friendly. We have been blessed having you as a loved member of the family and sharing meals with you and Elaine. We will miss you.

Paul, Susan, Chris, Rochelle, Janet, Ellen and family.

A fantastic Brother-in-Law as well as our friend. A kind-hearted, warm and gentle man who was willing to lend a hand to anyone when needed. Your sense of humour made us smile and we will never forget you. Rest in peaceful sleep Dave. Love you and miss you always. Michelle & Martin xxxx 😘

Michelle & Martin

A shock to hear of Dave’s passing. A quiet, hard working bloke, one of my best mates at Campbell’s. We spent many a hour together as work colleagues, usually talking hobbies or putting the world to rights. Sadly i fell out of touch with Dave when i moved out of Lynn. Condolences to his wife and family who i know he loved very much.

At a very difficult time I could not fault Thornalley. Everything was organised so very well and they covered everything.I had nothing to worry about and they were also very professional and kind, caring and compassionate.
