Mr C Ford

MR Clive Ford passed away on June 8 in Southampton.

He was born in Gowerton and also lived in Haverfordwest.

Clive spent most of his childhood in Haverfordwest and his first job was in a local bakery before labouring for a local builder until he went to work in the former slaughterhouse at the top of Dew Street.

This was a very handy commute because Clive lived in Richmond Crescent and would hop over the wall to work.

As his butchery skills improved Clive decided to go to sea as a ships butchers working initially on the MV Apapa sailing out of Liverpool before moving to the Union Castle Line in Southampton sailing on the Transvaal Castle to South Africa. The chef on board became a great friend especially as he arranged for him to go on a blind date with his girlfriends friend Anthea, with whom he married in 1968.

Clive would come home to Pembrokeshire during shore leave until he finally found a job on land working at the Esso refinery in Fawley and settling nearby.

Clive kept up with local news when his nephew Steve visited bringing numerous editions of the Western Telegraph and he always ensured that Steve brought him a large bag of Pembrokeshire earlies during the summer months.

Clive was a lively character and will be sorely missed by his family and friends

The family left to mourn and principal mourners are Anthea Ford (wife); Tony and Doreen Edwards (brother and sister-in-law); Stephen and Karen James (nephew); Alex James (great nephew); Emily James (great niece); David and Louise Edwards (nephew); Wendy Swann (niece); Gabby and Chloe Swann (great nieces).
