I find myself at a loss for words to express my shock and deep sadness on the passing of Claude.
The following anecdote might help:-
Following a round of Pitch and Putt we (the ExBT "lads") retired to the Dog and Doublet for lunch. After eating, Claude went outside for some fresh air, where he collapsed.
An ambulance was called. On regaining consciousness, looking very pale and unwell, Claude was very calm and more concerned about how Shirley would react to the news than he was about his own welfare. That, to me, speaks volumes about the man and his family values.
Claude will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Claude was a big part of my childhood, going on holiday with Shirl, Chris and Mike. We made great memories always filled with laughter. One of my dads best friends for many years and a true gent. Rest in peace Claude
