Wonderful sendoff for a great man


Rest in peace Jack, never far away from your bike. What a wonderful gesture. Image posted on Facebook by Jimmy Morris.

I just had to share this – you’ll remember that much loved historian and Walsall cyclist and character Jack Haddock passed away recently – well, yesterday it was Jack’s funeral which took place in Lichfield.

Posted on the Jack Haddock appreciation page on Facebook, two images from an excellent, sensitive and beautiful memorial.

Rest in peace, Jack, a fine celebration of a great, great man. Your friends did you proud – my gratitude to them.

Do check out the Facebook group for memories, images and discussion of Jack and his work.
