To you all, our thoughts and sadness cannot be expressed fully in words, Gabz was a great friend and companion, we had some brilliant times together one of the best ‘do’ we have ever been to was the ‘pie and peas’ silver anniversary, what a night that was, but there were loads of other fun times. Gabz will be missed and we are thinking of Andrea, Debbie and Suzanne, the good times will never be forgotten


Joseph Heyes

A truly amazing character. A genuine person with so much to give. So extremely obvious how proud he was of his family and especially his grandchildren. Everytime gabz was around we would always have an in-depth conversation. A man of so much experience that willingly would give a hand or word of wisdom to anyone because he was just that nice of a person. A truly saddening time and someone that will be truly truly missed by us all. Rest easy Gabor.


Debbie Hinds

József (Brother)

Hey Kid, it’s me Joe. Only a few know how much I once missed you bró and now I’m to miss you some more. The Good times we’ve had I do treasure and those memories I fondly do store, in a place that cannot be measured as the hole left is too big to restore. Maybe with time it will heel, but I have to tell you I feel, It’s like a limb that I’ve lost, I love you a lot and this I will never conceal. Be At Peace our Kid in that new place we talked of a lot. I know that you are now better, and this comforts us all a lot. Give my regards to the others, the others we also miss. Be at Peace my Dear Brother, knowing that I love you to bits. XXX.
