At Hedon Blog, we were extremely saddened to hear about the death of our friend and colleague Dale Ian Smith at the end of the old year. Dale was a founder member and stalwart of our Hedon Blog Photos – Old & New our private Facebook Page.
Well-known locally, Dale will be very sadly missed. His daughter Lindsay has posted in the Facebook group about the funeral which we share here:
“We would like to let everyone know that dads funeral will be held on Monday 25th January at 11am st Augustine’s Church, Hedon then on to Hedon cemetery for interment. The cortege will leave the residence at 10.45am and will pass by the Shakespeare Inn then on to the church. As covid has put a stop to giving dad the send-off he deserves we would request as a family that those who wish to, may pay their respects by lining Ivy Lane at 11.30am socially distanced of course.
“Also, we have set up a Just Giving page and would ask those who wish to, to make a contribution in dad’s memory to the Dove House hospice. Those who would rather can also leave a donation with Neal at Hedon Carpets and Beds just envelope it up and post it as Neal is in the shop every day and will ensure its safety. We would like to again thank you for all the messages of support you have offered us in this difficult time…we really do appreciate it and it has been a huge comfort to us all.”
