Story

Scott Gillard, an amazing Husband and Father passed away on the 1st June 2014, leaving a vacant hole in all our lives. We are going to miss him more than any words can possibly express.

He passed away peacefully, but way too early at the age of 58.

We are very grateful to everyone who has contacted us to give their condolences. As you may be aware, Scott had a bicycle accident a few years ago and the air ambulance service were amazing in getting him to the right hospital. They returned him safely to us and In the years to follow he was able to meet his 2 beautiful grandchildren. 
On the 1st June, they again did everything they possibly could to bring him back to us, unfortunately it was his time to leave us, and despite all their efforts, they would never have been able to succeed. 

We have decided to keep the funeral a small family affair, however we are more than aware that Scott touched so many peoples lives and know you'd all love to leave him a message.

In place of flowers, we have set this page to raise some much needed funds for this very worthy cause, and for you all to leave a message.

Thank you all for your kindness at this immensely difficult time for us.

Tracey, Stephanie, Adam, Josh and Family
