It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our senior director and shareholder, Eric Vickers. Eric died this morning (Wednesday 6 July) of spinal cancer. Naturally the family and those of the staff who knew him are very sad, but the overall sentiment is relief rather than grief. Until very recently Eric enjoyed a full and active life, but the last few weeks proved very painful. He was a pillar of the community and will be sorely missed. Eric is survived by his dear wife, Margaret and three daughters. Eric’s funeral will take place on Friday 15 July at 2.30pm at Tarleton Holy Trinity Church. Anyone who knew him would be welcome to attend and light refreshments will be laid on afterwards.
Tight lines and screaming reels, Eric.
