The funeral service took place at SS Peter and Paul’s Church, Eye,on September 9 for William Edward Taylor (known as Bill) who will be well remembered in the town as a butcher for many years until his retirement.
The service was conducted by Father Frank Howard and the organist was Colin Bartlett.
Mr Taylor began his career as a butcher, being employed by the late George Edwards in Broad Street and, after serving for two years in the army, returned to his job, later being employed by Baxters.
He married Marjorie in 1950 and also leaves a daughter Pam, son in law John and one granddaughter Sharon.
In a tribute, Charles Flatman described Bill as a true gentleman who left behind a legacy of honour and respect. “Characters come and go, but some leave a lasting memory and Bill was such a person” said Mr Flatman.
