The old boy, Tom passed away today in hospital from a chest infection. He was 83
I found him lying on the floor in his kitchen 3 1/2 weeks ago with his arm cut open and unable to get up.
It was the second time in 2 days.
He was a cantankerous old f**ker who spent his life in the Merchant Navy and was a boy sailor during the war.
Even in Civvie life, he thought he could order people around and make them dance to his tune. Didn't work though.
Also, he didn't have one single relative in the whole world. What a lonely existence
