A short while ago it was my sad duty to report the passing of Mr. Anthony ‘Tony’ Hackett, a well loved and respected Brownhills gentleman who spent may years as a local school Caretaker and scout leader – the many touching tributes and kind words about Tony from his friends and former school pupils were lovely and a comfort to his Granddaughter Tara and family.
The warmth and kindness of readers made me proud. Thanks to you all.
Tara has been in touch again to ask if I could share the details of Tony’s funeral, so that anyone wishing to attend can do so.
Just to let you know, my grandad’s funeral will be taking place on Tuesday, 10th May 2016 at Streetly Crematorium at 14:15 in the West Chapel.
Could you please spread the word in case there is anyone who would like to attend?
Thanks again for all your help.
Thanks Tara, and if there’s anything further I can help with, please do get in touch. Tony was clearly very much liked and held in high regard by many people and whilst nothing can ease the loss you must feel, I hope the kind sentiments expressed are of some comfort.
