In Celebration of
Alan George Clewer
07 June 2018
Dear family and friends,
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Mr Alan George Clewer who passed away peacefully on 7th June 2018, after an 18 month battle with cancer.
Alan was a much loved father, grandfather, uncle, companion, friend and rambler, who truly lived life to the full.
He is survived by son David, daughter Claire, and grandchildren Katherine and James, and also leaves behind his dear companion Rowena, who helped make his final years so happy.
You are invited to visit this Online Memorial for Alan and to share in the creation of the Memorial by leaving a personal message and any special remembrances, photos or videos. Please visit the condolences tab to leave a personal message, and/or visit the life stories tab, under 'my story' to add your memories of Alan.
Details of the funeral can be found below. Alan did not want flowers at his funeral, other than from family, and did not favour any particular charity. His wishes were for friends and family to make donations to the charity of their choice, if they so wished.
Alan did not want people to wear black, so please feel free to wear whatever you would feel comfortable to. He would not be offended if you turned up in walking gear!
The wake will be held immediately after the funeral and will take place 5 minutes away at The Jackdaw in Denton. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to plan for sufficient numbers please let Claire know by 30th June on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07545777131 if you are planning to attend the wake.
Please bear in mind parking may be limited at both the Crematorium and The Jackdaw so you may wish to car share or use public transport, and please allow sufficient time.
Alan's family have chosen to support Cancer Research, MacMillan and also the High View Oast Nursing Home who took such good care of him. The home are fundraising for their vintage summer house tea room for the enjoyment of their residents and families.
Alan was always extremely supportive of his daughter Claire's running and often assisted her in organising or participating in events to help with her fundraising. In recognition of this, Claire has created a Giving Page for the Cancer Research Race for Life, which she ran in Alan's memory just a few days after he died.
