January 2009

Duncan Wilson

Duncan Wilson lived in Chatham and was a lifelong West Ham United fan who followed them every week. Duncan passed away on 11 January after a short illness and will be missed by family and friends alike (whether in Chatham or his adopted home in Sospel, France). 

Duncan will still be watching and cheering the Hammers on from wherever.

We love you forever mate,
Andrew



John William Bradshaw, a life-long West Ham United supporter, sadly passed away on 29 January 2009.

John went to bed on the 28 January after watching his beloved Hammers win, but tragically he never woke up. He was 59.

His funeral was held at a packed at a Barking Abbey in February and the congregation were treated to a moving rendition of 'Bubbles'.

Mike Brown

Mike Brown, who was a lifelong West Ham fan, died on Jan 27 aged 45 after a courageous battle with cancer.
After his wife Julie and sons Matthew and Jacob, the club was the great love of his life.
Both boys have inherited their Dad's passion and wear their claret and blue shirts with the same pride.
