In loving memory of Michael Frederick Thorpe who sadly passed away on 7th March 2019. Born to Eric and Lilly Thorpe on the 19th November 1940, with one brother and three sisters. Michael was loving, kind, and generous, with a warm happy infectious personality. He had been happily married to his late wife Mary Thorpe for well over fifty years, and between them they had three sons Timothy, Ian and Nicholas, daughter in laws Alicia, Kathy and Tracey, with eight grandchildren and great grandchildren, several nephews and nieces, and great nephews and great nieces, which if able he kept in contact with and met up with whenever possible, all of whom he was very proud, to the extent he had most of the walls in his house covered with their photographs. He was also surrounded by an ever growing community of friends and neighbors. Anyone privileged enough to have met our father will know what sorrow and loss that his sudden passing has caused, and will undoubtedly leave a hole in all of our hearts. He will now be reunited in heaven with his wife, son, parents, brother and sisters, daughter in law and friends he has lost over the years, your memory will live on within us all, sleep well Dad we love you xxxx

Mike learning of your departure was a shock! just like you not to make a fuss.
The man that I have come to know and love over the years through the Horses is a true gentleman, kind, caring and loves to have a chat over a cup of Tea in a Cup and Saucer with biscuit(s) when he was not having a Party...
I feel very privilaged to have had you in my life and to have been a part of yours, I will always hold you in my heart and cherish the memories.

Michael was a very good friend to me and my family I have lovely memories of Michael and Mary. My sister Victoria owned the horse field next door to Michael and Mary house ,they both liked to watch the horses . He was a true gentleman and had such a lovely sense of humour, my son Alfie loved him like a grandad he called him the biscuit man, because every time he saw Michael he would have a biscuit and cup of tea with him. Goodbye my wonderful friend thank you for all your kind words and support xxxx

When we heard that you had passed away we were deeply shocked and saddened. We met you through our beautiful daughter Lauren being with your amazing grandson Karl. Although we only had the pleasure of seeing you a few times at parties and a few times while you were out shopping, that was enough to know that you were a true gentleman,you took the time to get to know us and would always have a chat with us and make us laugh :) your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. Rest in peace Micheal you will be sadly missed X x x x

A few words really aren't enough to describe what a treasure you are, one of the good ones, the grandad I never had. You are going to be missed so much by us all. It's been a pleasure knowing you for the past 9 years and im so thankful for the time my two beautiful girls got to spend with you, I love the way you adored Imogen and Lilah as much as they adore you. I promise they will grow up always knowing and remembering their incredible Great-Grandad. Thankyou for welcoming me with open arms and all your hugs. We all love you so much more than you will ever know. Sleep Tight Grandad Thorpe xxxx

I don't know how to start this but grandad you was a big part of my life and you will always have a massive place in my heart. I have so many good memories with you, we have played in garden, I've climbed all your big trees in the garden. We have been on some good days out and been on the best holidays to some fantastic places. I used to love the sleepovers we had at yours with you and grandma and all the stories you used to tell me and Adam, all the games we used to play in the garden. I still remember them all grandad. I Love You So so much and I'm not going stop thinking of all the good times we spent together, I know you are always going to look over me and Adam now you are up there in peace with grandma, you 2 can be back together again and thank you not just for being the best grandad anyone could ask for, thank you for the time you spent with my special little girls imogen and lilah they love you so much to I know grandma didn't see them and meet them but the years you had with them has made up for that we will meet again grandad Thorpe xxxxxx

Still can't believe this amazing strange man has gone . I will always miss your terrible jokes and awful choice of shorts . And I will always remember everything you did for me . You took me on the best days out of my life ( minus Bedford of course ) ;) you taught me how to be a true gentleman and to smile in the fsce of adversity . It's always going to hurt knowing that you won't be there to see me father children or get married. But knowing that you will be watching over all of these things with grandma is the biggest consolation anyone could ask for . You will be forever loved and missed . And this pack of cards will always be missing a joker . Xxxxxx
