Hello.

My father was David Richards. He was a foreman on the M5 around Gloucester, Glasgow bypass and Pembroke Dock jobs in the late 60's and early 70's.
He went on to build a sucessful agri plant business west of Worcester.

Sadly, after a period if ill health, dad passed away last Friday.

If any of the ex Dick Hampton community that knew dad would like to attend, the funeral will be on the 18th of March at 11:30am at St. Bartholomew's Church, Harpley, Worcestershire WR6 6HG.

Thanks

Sadly john died about six months ago, think his heart. Think he had a heart do when he was younger. Chris fenech went to oz a few years ago with his 2nd wife and 2 sons.
