I have known him for some 20 years. Alan was hardworking, thoughtful and had a wicked and self- deprecating sense of humour. He will be missed.
His funeral is this Thursday 24 March 2016. It will leave his home at 34 Sebright House, Coate Street, London, E2 9AD at 11am then going to Manor Park Crematorium for 12.30 returning to Sebright House afterwards.
His sister Jill says everyone who knew him is welcome. Alan had diabetes for many years and if you wish to send a donation instead of flowers she has set up a Just Giving Page https://www.justgiving.com/Jill-Brown13 for DiabeticsUK
