He was a very colourful character Pip, It is hard to imagine that he made such delicate and beautiful glass. He was a very humble man happier to be in the employ of others,and lived very simply even in his last years. He truly was a wonderful person, doting on his grandchildren, who would take great pleasure in taking me to the pub when i was only 11 and letting me stick my straw from my coke into his pint to get an illicit sip of beer!!
He died in 1975 but is remembered fondly as Grampo as we called him.
