With only very close family present, a short but moving service was held for Don Tomlin at the City of London Cemetery in Manor Park on Friday 1st May 2020. Don’s family kindly sent us videos of it to share with you. Hopefully an event to celebrate Don’s life will be able to be held in September, when Don would have been 81.
Don Tomlin was born in Canning Town on 30th Sept 1939, just after WWII started. He worked in the Docks, on the railways. Don married Maureen in May 1960. Their family now includes great grand children.
You can watch the burial and serve in the three 5-6 min videos below. The clergyman mentioned The Geezers and the “network of friendships” that Don joined 5 years ago. There are lots of photos of Don out and about with The Geezers Club in our previous article here.
