Uncle Eric 1928-2012

Today is the funeral of my great uncle Eric. He died almost just over two weeks ago after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was born on the 13th June 1928, the second child of four of Alfred and Elsie.



He married in a double wedding in 1954 with his brother (my grandfather) to Una (my grandmother’s sister).

He was the father of two children Neil and Carole.

He worked as a painter and decorator.

He was the grandfather of four granddaughters and was one of the sweetest men I’ve ever met.

Below are some of my favourite pictures of him.
