  3. We are so very sorry to hear of Syd’s passing. Syd was a customer of ours for many, many years and a dear friend. The boys always enjoyed his talks when he waited on his special chair in the workshop for his car to be fixed. I will miss our talks on gardening and his advice on how to get the best out of my tomatoes ( always enjoyed the bag of goodies he bought in for me ) I had great pleasure taking Syd to my house for him to see my garden. I will miss visiting and taking Meg ( my dog ) to see him at the village and supplying Syd with a calendar each year. Our thoughts go out to all the family at this time, he always talked of them lovingly , Our sincere condolences from Kathy, Greg & Craig @ East-West Auto’s

  7. Uncle Plugger, such an amazing loving, gentle soul. Your smile, happy demeanour and infectious laugh said it all. So many fond memories of family visits and holidays together, fun was had by everyone. I can still hear you telling us stories of when you and Dad were young lads running a muck around the local haunts. You will be sadly missed and live in our memories forever. Love to all the family from Denise Jellis ( Pearson) and girls xx
