Funeral Arrangements for Vic Russell

Committal:11am Thursday 12th October 2023 at Weeley Crematorium

Colchester Rd, Weeley CO16 9JP

The crematorium is not easily accessible by public transport and is too far from Clacton to walk there.

Friends and family are welcome to follow the cortege from Vic and Sue’s home in their own vehicles. If you wish to do so please contact David, Tim or Sue for details.

Celebration of Vic’s life:

12 noon Thursday 12th October 2023 at Christ Church URC

6 Carnarvon Road, Clacton-on-Sea CO15 6PH, followed by refreshments in the church hall

Vic’s preferences:

No black clothes, please, and gentlemen, if you have a colourful tie or waistcoat, please wear it! Vic loved his loud ties and, whilst he recognised that there would be tears at his funeral, he wanted it essentially to be a service of thanksgiving that Jesus, whom he loved above ALL had died that Vic and all who believed might live in Heaven with Him for all eternity.

Finally, if you have a teddy bear, please bring it with you (and be sure to take it home afterwards). Vic believed in the comfort of having a teddy bear to hug in difficult times moments

No flowers, please, but gifts to Good News for Everyone (formerly GideonsUK) or   Abundant Hope of Glory Mission, based in Elburgon, Kenya

Please contact us for details of where to park, also for reserved parking at the church for those with mobility problems. Tendring residents with local permits are asked to park in the multi-storey car-park
