Dad and PA.

You were the world to your family, your love, guidance, and humour were incredible and appreciated.

Your love for Mum and Grandma, was an example to us all and set the tone for the close loving family you both created.

We knew you were a Star as you told us so, we are immensely proud of your achievements in your career, a career which only came to a halt with your first bout of illness in your early 80’s.

You were still a famous Brighton “Iceberger” at almost 85.

You saw your fair share of heartbreak in our family, yet you continued to look after those left behind until finally, you too succumbed to illness.

Friendships were valued and treasured by you Dad, to this day you have many friends of many years standing.

One of these friends, some 20 years ago, told me we would never know just how many people you have helped in so many ways over the years.  I may have a good idea from the love which has come our way the last few years. Always the gentleman, always impeccably dressed when in front of the camera, that is until the Handball Shows started, then it was the tracksuits turn!

Dad and Pa, we will all miss you so very much though our memories are priceless.

Golden, you have left your Family a Legacy of love of a man we shall never ever forget.

And, You Did It Your Way!

Love you dad, Shell x

  2. My childhood memories of camping at Rosebud with the Deacon Colony, the girls & cute little Michael. They were fabulous times & Michael Snr was just getting into TV & sports we all thought how famous he was. He was so lovely to us kids. Deepest Sympathy to all the family, a life well lived, reunited with his love ones. RIP Mike thanks for the memories. XX
