Location: Nuneaton Crematorium, Eastboro Way, CV11 6WZ
Following the tragic death of Veteran For Peace Stu Richards, members are asked to attend his funeral in Nuneaton.
Stu Richards turned up on Remembrance Sunday in 2016. He had just left the Army and had come to find Veterans For Peace and join us. He immediately fitted in and over time showed a firm commitment to our cause, attending our Annual Gathering in 2017 and our Armed Forces Day event this year in Blackpool.
He brought his dad Mel into the organisation, both had served in the British Army on operations. Stu was due to travel down to London next month with his mate Stuart Dillon to take part in this years Annual Gathering.
Stuart Dillon said “Stuart was very passionate about politics. Having served his country, he became a great believer in the need for change and to stop unnecessary wars. He was dedicated to the cause of Veterans For Peace, a thoroughly decent friend and person”.
Stu Richards will be greatly missed by the members of Veterans For Peace. He was calm, thoughtful, loyal and friendly. Our thoughts are with his family.
The crematorium is 6 min taxi or 30 min walk from Nuneaton station.
There will be a reception afterwards to celebrate Stu’s life at Ambleside Sports Club (1.4 miles from the crematorium).
