Obituary:  Edward Upton

Edward Upton

Our members were shocked and saddened by the sudden death of our good friend and recent treasurer Edward Upton.

Edward and his wife Joan were returning home from visiting his daughters new house on Sunday the 8th of July 2012 when they were involved in a head on collision on the A24 just north of Horsham, Edward died and Joan is still in hospital recovering from her injuries.

Edward had been an active supporter of our branch before he recently had a house built in Cyprus to live in during the winter months to ease his breathing difficulties in our English climate.

He had a great interest in racing cars, annually visiting Le mans and was especially attracted to the classic car scene.

The fellowship will miss him and we send our most sincere condolences to Joan and their family.

Edwards funeral will be held at the Worthing crematorium at 3pm on Monday the 30th July 2012.

Peter Saywell (of Saywell industries Worthing) brother in law) in memory of Edward is planning to dedicate the profits from a classic car day at Goodwood Motor Circuit on the 8th September to our branch.
