The funeral of past member Edward Johnson took place at Trinity Methodist Church, Sarum Hill, Basingstoke on Friday 9th September 2016.
He resigned from the club in 2011 as his Alzheimer’s disease progressed which meant he had to go into a care home where he resided until his passing.
The funeral was well attended and President Fred Locke and Secretary Paul Flint represented our club. After the church service the immediate family went to the Crematorium for a final farewell to Edward. We learnt that as well as his extensive sporting interests that Edward had been one of the original Street Pastors that serve the town at night time. He leaves second wife Barbara, a son and daughter from his first marriage, grand children and great grand children.
