Today we said our final farewells to Tom, Mine and Steve66's brother in law, though we both came to love him as a brother.
Tom was a life long Stoke fan, season ticket holder, regular Oatcake reader and very occasional poster on here too. He passed away on July 22nd just 9 months after being diagnosed with Stomach cancer and leaves behind a loving wife, Gil, 2 children and 1 grand child. Tom was just 1 month short of his 61st birthday.
He was a larger than life character and a typical stokie as he would moan to high heaven about all the faults in the team but would follow them religiously never the less. Always one to take the piss and speak his mind no matter what but he would also be the first in line to offer help and would go out of his way to do so.
Tom, I'm going to miss you my friend and brother, there's a hole in mine and others lives where you used to stand.
