It is with regret that I have to break the news of Godfrey’s passing.
Godfrey was a great bloke, always helping where he could with the branch, he did all the expediting of people who took the buses to the home games from Whaley Bridge.
Godfrey travelled to a lot of Euro away games with us and was recognised by a lot of the euro away travellers, it has not been possible for me to reach all these people to let them know, but I am sure word will get round on the grapevine
If it wasn’t for his love of Manchester United, then Godfrey would probably not have been to the numerous places he has been to, his famous statement being ‘ If it wasn’t for Manchester United, I would never have to leave Whaley Bridge’
Godfrey leaves behind his wife Joyce and their two children, Johnathan and Nicola, our deepest condolences to you all
The arrangements for the funeral have been announced:
Monday 25th November at 12-00
Directions are turn left at Taxal turn on the Whaley to Macclesfield road, The church is about half a mile along that lane
Afterwards at Whaley Bowling Club
RIP Godfrey you will always be with us on our travels.
Apologies for the members who cannot make the funeral, some are actually travelling to Astana in Kazakhstan on Monday at 11-00.
