Extra information in the Parish Magazine

Although in poor health for some years now, Mr Frank Reeves of Bretforton Road, seemed in recent weeks to be getting on well. During the past three years, he had to undergo a number of serious operations, all of which would have tested the endurance of a much younger man. He was his eighties and for some years past he was dependent upon a heart pacemaker device. He coped with this and with his failing eyesight with great patience both at home and in hospital. During his earlier years, he was a founder member of the local branch of the Royal British Legion, and always retained his interest in the branch and club. For many years he carried on his business as a fruit and vegetable merchant both here and in Wolverhampton, a job which meant setting out most mornings for the Wolverhampton market at four o’clock. Born in Hampton, he spent most of his life in this parish, and will be missed by a wide circle of friends. May he rest in peace.
