Justin Wickens 1958–⁠2015

We are very sad to report the death of Justin Wickens, who passed away peacefully on the morning of Christmas Eve from cancer after a short stay in a North London Care Home. Justin was a keen player and an enthusiastic supporter of bridge in London—he played in most events and for many years ran the Buttons Bridge Club. Our sympathies and condolences go to his many friends and family.

 

The funeral will be held on Monday, 18 January. Full details follow, in the email his family members sent to the club.

JUSTIN WICKENS

 

In Loving Memory of Justin Mark Wickens, Aged 57 Years

 

Dear All,

 

As you may be aware it is with great sadness we inform you our beloved son and brother Justin Wickens died peacefully in Cricklewood on 24 December 2015 following a long‑term illness.

 

You are invited to join us in celebrating Justin’s life at St Agnes Catholic Church, 35 Cricklewood Lane, London, NW2 1HR on Monday, 18 January 2016 at 12.30pm.

 

The service at St Agnes will be followed by a short cremation service at Hendon Crematorium, Holders Hill Road, London, NW7 1NB and afterwards a gathering for refreshments and memories at Stephens House, 17 East End Road, Finchley, London, N3 3QE. (www.stephenshouseandgardens.com)

 

The use of public transport is recommended as St Agnes church is only about 2 minutes walk from Cricklewood station on the Thameslink route (www.nationalrail.co.uk) with direct trains to London St Pancras International, St Albans, and Luton. Please note that transport between the church, crematorium and Stephens House is being provided.

 

Stephens House is close to several bus routes including the 460 which passes Cricklewood station and the house is approximately ten minutes’ walk from Finchley Central underground station on the Northern Line (www.tfl.gov.uk).

 

We would kindly request family flowers only, but donations to Prostate Cancer UK would be very much appreciated. We have created a special page for Justin on their site through which this can be done: http://justin.wickens.muchloved.com/. You can also post remembrances, photos, and thoughts here, which we can all share and enjoy.

 

We are very happy for you to forward this invitation to anyone who knew Justin and would like to join us in our celebration. In order to assist us with transport and catering arrangements, we would be grateful if you could confirm whether you are able to attend by emailing Kate Wickens at kew.ppt(AT)gmail.com. It would also be useful to know if you have any special dietary requirements.

 

 

With love

 

Christine, Kate, Tim, and Rupert.
