Loss Fiona Dee and family thinking of you’s at this sad time may fran RIP 09/05/2021 by Cliona Fsgan My heartfelt sympathies to Fiona, Sheila. John, Dee grandchildren, friends and family. Fran"s loss has been a shock to all and I wish I hsd got to say goodbye to you but you were taken too soon I have worked with Fran for close to 10years as he was our caretaker at work I say our caretaker dearly with the greatest sense of loss and sadness. I will miss his big gummy smile so much and how he has pronounced my name wrong for 10 years when I eventually gave up telling him the correct way to say it. Fran and I have been through many things over the years and he was the most reliable person I know I would tease Fran about how long he took to do something at work, but when he did get to it in his calmly manner it was done with patience and precision. Fran was a man of few words and was content in his own quietness. We will miss him driving around in the work golf buggy which became know as 'Frans Buggy' amongst the team at work when he didn't like to share it ! He blamed his dodgy knees ! Fran we will miss you terribly and everytime I look at a can of coke i will forever remember you and your love of drinking coke. I found an empty can yesterday on my doorstep and I'm taking that as a sign sent from you ... Rest in peace our gentle giant i will miss you Love Cliona xx ( aka Boss as you used to call me ) 09/05/2021 by John and Susan Finn Thinking of you Fiona and family.
