Friends pay tribute to holiday park maintenance man

THE ashes of a Henley man have been scattered at the holiday park where he worked for more than 30 years.

Eric Spicer, who died on July 7, aged 74, worked at Swiss Farm, off Marlow Road, for more than three decades with his wife Vera.

He maintained the park and was bailiff of the fishing lake.

On Friday 35 family members and friends gathered to scatter half his ashes near the lake in accordance with his last wishes. The other half have been interred in a family grave in London, where he was born and raised.

Trevor Beales, who used to fish with Mr Spicer at the lake, said: “He was a loving father figure to all his family.
