Everyone in The Old Neptune knew Mike, he was known for booking bands and chatting about music while supping his pint of Harveys at the end of the bar. Sadly Mike passed away at home last week after being unwell for some time.
Due to Mike's private nature and personal circumstances the powers that be have been unable to contact any of his family at this sad time, so to avoid him having a paupers funeral his Neppy family have stepped in and will be arranging the funeral for our friend Mike.
If you are reading this then there is a good chance you might have shared a pint or a tale with Mike, or have appreciated one of the many bands that Mike booked for us all to enjoy. Mike wasnt always the chattiest of people but he took pleasure from seeing other people enjoying 'his bands' and he liked sharing his music with others and giving out CDs or information to anyone who showed an interest in his Simon Cowell like knowledge.
We have made some enquiries and hope to have a service for Mike on the beach and scatter his ashes into the sea* at The Old Neptune.
We ask that any of you who knew Mike might be generous and kind enough to help us give Mike the send off he deserves. No one deserves to go out of this world unrecognised and Mike was definitely one of our many characters in the Neptune.
Thank you in advance... The Neppy Family xx
