MICHAEL John Moulder, known to many as Mike, passed away peacefully at the Florence Nightingale Hospice, Stoke Mandeville, on January 12, aged 68.

Mike worked at Hambleden Village Stores for five years as joint shop manager with his wife Diane.

He came to the shop in October 2009 and found that several issues needed resolving, a situation which he was determined to remedy.

He was a strong Yorkshireman who was never afraid to confront problems head on and didn?t tolerate fools gladly.

He was loyal, committed, very generous, proud, stubborn and adventurous. He had a cheeky sense of humour and always enjoyed banter with all the customers and loved them even more if they came in with their pet dogs.

Mike was a great dog lover and had his own black Labrador called Winston and was always willing to give the dogs a treat.

He had five children, one stepson and six grandchildren and was very protective of them all. When children came into the shop he was always willing to give them a lollipop and have some fun.

Mike loved Hambleden, the countryside and the Chilterns very much. He was a great walker and enjoyed helping any lost rambler who came into the shop to get back on the right path.

The shop has lost a very special person. He touched so many lives with his enthusiasm, his sense of humour, his love of life, his laughter and his big hugs and strong handshake.

Mike was diagnosed with terminal cancer in July but was determined to fight and conquer the disease, working right up to Christmas as he battled several infections.

The family would like to say a big thank-you to all the staff at Stoke Mandeville Hospital for looking after him. Special thanks to the staff at the Florence Nightingale Hospice and a big thank-you to all those who donated money as more than £1,000 was raised for the hospice.

We shall continue to raise money for the hospice in Mike?s memory.
