Alan Pye, four decades at Tildesley Ford on Northgate. Images Kindly supplied by Jamie Norgrove.
Old pal of the blog and human dynamo behind Brownhills Musical Theatre Company Jamie Norgrove has been in touch to share some sad news – Jamie’s Grandfather, Alan Pye who worked for years at Tildesley Ford in Aldridge passed away on the 23rd of July, and Jamie would like to invite anyone who knew Alan to the funeral, which takes place on Tuesday.
My sincerest condolences to Jamie and all of Alan’s family and friends – he was clearly a very popular and respected man from the outpouring of respect on social media. Many ford owners will remember Alan from the dealership days on Northgate.
I’m after a favour. I’m trying to get in touch with anyone who worked at Tildesley Ford in Aldridge who would’ve known my Grandad, Alan Pye, affectionately known as ‘Apple’.
He sadly passed away on 23rd July 2017 and it’s his funeral on Tuesday 15th August at 2:15pm at Streetly Crem.
Grandad worked at Tildesley’s for over 40 years and we’d like to let folks know.
I include a picture of the staff at Tildesley Ford on the Northgate around 1980. My Grandad worked there for over forty years.
All welcome at the service or at Barons Court afterwards.
Thanks to Jamie for sharing the innovation and my sympathies to all for their loss.
