It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Simon (Chuck) Charles Whitham, who passed away on 25th July.
Simon was an active Liveryman and member of the Polymer Committee and the Awards Committee, bringing first hand experience from his injection moulding business.
He was very much involved with the social life of the Horners and his sound council and ready wit will be greatly missed.
Simon’s funeral was on 13th August at St.Mary’s Church Felmersham, his splendid medieval parish church; which was packed and was attended by a number of Horners.
Three eulogies were given including one from his father stressing his love of sailing and beer as well as his admirable character. Two “hymns we all know” had fortuitously been chosen and the burial took place in the churchyard. A reception was held at the old Sun pub nearby, which coincidentally Simon and his father once considered buying. It was quite a squash and a good thing that the weather allowed us to drink outside.
Our thoughts are with his wife Chris and all his family.
