In Memory

Tony Gartshore

17 Nov 1931 - 05 Nov 2018

Dad was diagnosed with Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6 nearly 30 years ago. Whilst it is a progressive illness which slowly robbed him of his mobility, speech and motor functions, he never lost his sense of humour and fun. In his earlier years he served in the Fleet Air Arm and saw active service in the Suez Crisis. He loved swimming and swam regularly until he was no longer able to do so. Friends and family knew him to be a person of great determination and warmth. He adored cooking and entertaining friends and family. Despite his disabilities, he lived to the age of 86, gained an Open University degree at the age of 71 and developed a lifelong love of literature and poetry.
