After a short illness my dad gave up his fight this morning a brentford fan all his life and made me one at a very young age he was 89 he used to ride his bike from his home in sipson to griffin park also he rode his bike all the way down the A4 to see the bees at elm park.me colnbee and his dad had some great days he allways siad he would love to see the bees at the new ground but sadly dad you cudnt go on nonore a loyal man and my mate you will be missed he leaves behind the next genration of bees good night dad...
Only a few weeks ago you were doing this for me Tom when I lost my dad, I feel your pain for your loss as I still do.
Tony Spencer or as I will always affectionaly know him as "Uncle Tony", a big proud man who along with the rest of his family welcomed me in at a very early age and the kindness and affection received was second to none.
Tony leaves behind a wonderful and caring wife "Auntie Mary" who felt more like a second mum to me, daughter Margaret who I think is a chip off her mums block, and of course my best mate Tom.
A sad and heart wrenching time for Tony and the rest of the family was the loss of their eldest son Dave, who in 1996 at the age of 36 lost his life after the long term effects of a motorbike accident caught up with him. But Dave along with his dad and brother was one of us, Bees fanatic through and through. (Still miss you Dave)
Going through some of my Dads photos recently I came across some of him and Mary at one of my Dads parties, early/mid seventies, did we really dress like that!! Memories of going to his allotment with Mary and Tom are still clear in my mind now, along with trips out for the day with both our families are also clear. As for going to GP I think like most of us are the best ones, they gave us all free lifelong addiction to the mighty Bees.
A scare at around the age of 60 (iirc) a heart attack which resulted in by-pass surgery was a very worrying time for all but ne pulled through and went on for almost another 30 years much to our delight!!
After his family flew the nest, him and Mary moved from Colnbrook to enjoy their later years together eventually ending up on the south coast away from the hustle and bustle of life and the constant noise of Heathrow,(great move.)
There are of course grandchildren to mention who will all deeply miss him but will all be there to comfort each other and of course to his wife Mary.
There is so much I could write but about Tony but it's starting to upset me so I will finish off now, hope my Dad has reserved him a good seat up there to watch us charge into the Premiership next season!! Tom, always there for you at any time of the day or night( even though your in Spain) and I hope you find some comfort reading this.
"Uncle Tony" will miss you dearly and it was a pleasure knowing you... God bless and rest in peace.
FLIP ME (personal thing only a few of us know)
