It was with great sadness that we learned recently that our dear friend and teammate had been taken from us far too soon.
Clive was the humblest and kindest of men and a complete gentleman. He was loved and will be hugely missed by all the Many Shades.
Last weekend, a memorial lunch was held for Clive at the Amex Stadium, home of his beloved Brighton & Hove Albion.
The occasion was a wonderful celebration of Clive’s life and an opportunity to swap stories and memories.
Throughout the lunch, Clive’s shirt was visible on his seat in the stand below.
You may be aware that Clive, having been an experienced bus driver, was an avid vintage bus enthusiast and it was great to meet up with his fellow enthusiasts who brought along a fine working example (sorry – I don’t know the make/model!) which Clive had helped to restore.
Our thanks go out to Clive’s wife, Josette, and family for inviting us along to be part of this wonderful tribute to Clive.
During the memorial lunch, a collection was made for Rowan’s Hospice where Clive spent his final few days. Anyone, wishing to make a donation can do so via their website.
