Francis John Rigden.

I respectfully make this contact with you to inform you and your members of the following facts:
My partners late father was Mr Francis John Rigden, who was born on 30th December 1930. Sadly I inform you of his death, following the third of three strokes, at the Royal Sussex County Hospital on 24th August 2017, aged 86 years.
Mr Rigden was born in Whitstable and was formally an apprentice and then shipwright at Anderson Rigden and Perkins Boatyard, of Island Wall, Whitstable. He retired to Peacehaven in Sussex, with his wife Pamela, his widow who still lives there. He had three sons and a daughter as well as an extended family.
His funeral will take place at All Saints Church, Whitstable, at 1130am on Tuesday 19th September 2017. Former friends and acquaintances would be most welcome to attend. Donations in Mr Rigden's memory to the Whitstable Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
I respectfully ask you to publish this information in any club newsletter and on your bulletin board.
Kind regards, Lysa Jephcott (daughter)
