Memory Lane Farewell to a fellow shrimper r.i.p.

Mar 10, 2011
Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
RICHARD WILLIAM WHITWELL 12/12/1956 to 28/12/2011. Yesterday I attended the funeral at Southend Crematorium of 'Winkie' a fan of well over 40 years who had a really unusual claim to fame. In the promotion season of 1971-72 when Blues played at Barrow he travelled up by coach, fell asleep on it, only to be woken up by fellow fans after the match was over. His popularity was obvious by the number of people attending his funeral and he will be no doubt be sorely missed by family & friends alike.
