PICTURES: Romany Gypsy funeral held in honour of Brian Hobbs from St Helier
A big Romany Gypsy funeral was held in honour of family-man Brian Hobbs from St Helier.
A horse drawn carriage led the cortege from the family home in Love Lane to Garth Road cemetery on Tuesday afternoon.
Friends and family paid tribute by leaving flowers which were placed on a trailer following the cortege.
Daughter, Adele Gregory, said: “In loving memory of a gentleman my Farth – a great man, a proud man, a fighter who battled to the end, who will be missed and forever loved by us all.
“His words: ‘If you live by love and loyalty and respect you have the recipe for a happy life. The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy’.
“There is a hole in our hearts in the shape of him a true gent a loving husband, father and grandfather who has definitely left a legacy of love and loyalty behind him.
“A man whom will never be forgotten sleep my Farth in perfect peace, God bless.”
"Gentleman" Brian David Hobbs
