Such sad news. Mike was a friend, always so cheerful and positive, with a wonderful sense of humour.
He will be greatly missed by many.

I'm passing on info from Mike's family received via JP regarding the funeral arrangements for the late Mike Cripps:

Quote
The funeral service for Mike CRIPPS will be held at Barton Crematorium Oxford at 2.15pm on Friday 15th January and then moving on to Dads favourite pub The Plough in Hasely around 3.30pm. As most of you know Dad was fond of a bright shirt or two ....so feel free to do the same on the day . We have made the decision to just have family flowers but if you would like, you may choose to support the British Heart Foundation in his memory. Just giving details are below. We look forward to seeing you on the day to celebrate his life. The CRIPPS Family xxxxx
