Alf Williams RIP

Earlier today I attended the funeral of Alfred Williams, a stalwart of the Kells community in Whitehaven, who has died at the age of 74.

Alf was a true gentleman in the modern sense, a polite and courteous man who always thought of others, and was great fun to be with.

He worked at Sellafield for many years, was very involved in raising money for Mayfield School, and was a stalwart supporter of the Rugby team at Kells who formed up to give him a guard of honour as his coffin was taken into and out of the church. He was also a keen golfer, an active freemason, and very involved in a whole range of charitable activities.

His funeral at St Peters' church, Kells was very well attended indeed with dozens of people having to stand, which I think says something about how popular he was with everyone who knew him and how much he will be missed.

Rest in Peace.
