MIKE C FOULDS - FUNERAL, 26 OCTOBER 2018
I have been asked by the Foulds family to let members know that sadly Mike C Foulds passed away recently, and that his funeral will be held on 26 October in Southampton

His son has asked to pass on this message- As many of you will remember, Mike worked in the OSR industry for many years, first at Vikoma, then at DESMI Ro-Clean, and made many friends throughout the UK and across the world. He enjoyed what he did, had a lot of great experiences during his travels and was well respected. He was a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Colleague and Friend, and we would like to ensure that he is given a proud send off.

The family would be grateful to receive any stories of his travels, and if anyone would like to attend the funeral, or make a donation in his name to Alzheimer’s Research, please let us know,mikedfoulds@aol.com by the 15th October.

If you could let the family know if you are planning on attending either A) The Funeral, B) The Wake, or C) Both, by responding to mikedfoulds@aol.com, by the 15th October, they would be grateful
