MESSAGES for the family of Michael John Patton
David & Linda Leeming & family
As a boy, I best remember Michael as my older cousin. Always happy to share his books and toys. He was quiet, modest and kind. A true gentleman and the world is a poorer place without him.
Ian F Smith
I am very sad to hear that Michael has passed away. Our working lives were intertwined for many years at Jas Broadley. He held an important role in the company ensuring our supply chain functioned well and was a great help to me over many years. He was a lovely man and a pleasure to work with, even when the pressure was on and time was tight. My condolences to his family and friends at this sad time, the World has lost a true Gentleman. Ian F Smith, ex Operations Manager at Broadley.
I’m thinking of you all so much as you face the tragic loss of Michael. Michael was a very dear friend to me over the years and I’ll never forget his caring nature. However, my enduring memory will be of his brilliant sense of humour – that sharp wit and turn of phrase – I never found anyone else who could match it.
Michael was a lovely, softly spoken man who always had a smile and a cheery word. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer neighbour and used to see him coming back from one of his walks, often several times a day, come rain or shine. We would chat about the weather or holidays that he or his family had taken and you could tell how much his family meant to him. Michael will be greatly missed. RIP
