Tommy Forster Obituary Death – It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we have to report that following a relatively short illness, our good friend Tommy Forster passed away earlier this week. Tommy’s departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled, but the memories we hold of him will forever bring warmth to our hearts.
While Tommy may not have been a rugby player himself, he was a dedicated and passionate member of the Alickadoos, a group of loyal supporters who followed the Leds in Claret and Blue. For many years, he traveled far and wide to cheer on his beloved team, sharing in the triumphs and tribulations of the sport he held dear.
Beyond his rugby enthusiasm, Tommy was a local legend in the north-east, renowned for his incredible skills on snooker and pool tables. Many will recall the countless hours spent in friendly competition, where Tommy’s talent was matched only by his infectious laughter and camaraderie. He had a knack for bringing people together, making even the most competitive games feel like shared moments of joy.
Tommy’s humor was another defining aspect of his personality, even if his jokes sometimes veered into cringeworthy territory. His quick wit and endless repertoire of one-liners were a source of amusement for all who knew him. No gathering with Tommy was complete without a hearty dose of laughter, even if it came at the expense of his own jokes.
In the motor industry, Tommy earned widespread respect for his expertise and dedication. His business, Village Car Repairs, located near the Tin Pot, became a hub for quality automotive work and lively conversations. It was impossible to pass by the garage without stopping for a chat with Tommy, where he shared wisdom about cars and life in equal measure. Many a problem was solved, and many a friendship was forged in that humble garage.
As we remember Tommy, each of us will hold our own cherished memories of him close to our hearts. Whether it’s the joy of a rugby match, the thrill of a snooker game, or the laughter provoked by one of his infamous jokes, Tommy’s presence enriched our lives in countless ways. Our deepest condolences and thoughts go out to Margaret and Tommy’s family during this incredibly sad time. May they find solace in the knowledge that Tommy’s memory will forever live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him. In celebrating his life, we find comfort in the smiles he brought to our faces and the enduring legacy of his warm spirit.
