One of the kindest , dependable people I have known . He drove my bus to softball games for 17 years - he and Mrs Tignor supported our girls and he was an excellent driver . Northumberland couldn’t have survived without them - Rest In Peace my friend - Heaven has gained another angel 😇

The statement about the way he lived his life with kindness, gentleness and devotion to his family is so descriptive of him. He had a very quiet strength. I will always remember his abundant garden and his woodworking. Prayers for the family. Gwen and Russell
