Soldier boy Obit: Ray Bower (Yorkshire, May 2011) (5) RE: Obit: Ray Bower (Yorkshire, May 2011) 31 May 11

Good words Alexis. Thank you very much.

Ray was indeed a very special man with a very special and natural talent to entertain. He had this amazing ability to pick up and learn words to songs, monologues and plays etc at astonishing speed and deliver them word/note perfect and add his own unique slant with his inimitable sense of humour and joy of life.

His delivery of the battle of Hastings monologue where Harold gets an arrow in his eye and the interjection of french and english always amazed me and is one I will always remember him by.

Sadly we have lost a man who was bigger than life and can never be replaced or forgotten. God bless you Ray.

Friends, please meet at Parkwood Crematorium, Elland, West Yorkshire, at 3.00pm on Wednesday 8th June to gather and remember Ray and the full and vibrant life he led.

Ray will indeed be greatly missed.

Family flowers only please, but donations would be appreciated for Kirkwood Hospice c/o T.W.Birks and son, Holme Valley Funeral Home, Woodhead Road, Holmfirth, HD9 2PR.

Thank you.
