Bob Miller, 90, of Thorns Cottage, (pictured left) died on August 27, after suffering a severe stroke.
The retired painter and decorator, a keen cricket follower, had played for Woodbury Cricket Club for a number of years in the early part of his life.
He leaves his wife, Nora, 88; son Robert; three grandchildren, Kevin, Lee and Hayley, and four great grandchildren, Matthew, Amber, Scarlet and Finley.
Nora, married to Bob for 69 years, said not only was he fanatical about cricket, he was a passionate all-round sports fan.
"You name it he played the game, whether it was cricket, darts, skittles or golf," she explained.
