How would you describe them?

“Nige, he was a loving Husband, a fantastic Dad, a caring Brother and a brilliant Uncle. He was also never shy to speak his mind and would help anyone.”

What did they love most?

“He loved his model trains and had planned to turn the loft in to his own model train world. He also loved carpentry and had more recently gardening.”

What will you remember most about them?

“The most prominent thing we will remember about him is his laugh and the caring nature he had.”

Dearest Nige, You were the most loving person I have ever met. Kind, generous & supportive to all. You were my whole world and it's a far poorer place without you in it. My life changed the moment I met you and for that I'll be forever grateful. You will be in my heart always and forever. All my Love & Affection "H" xxxx


It’s almost a cliché to say ‘one of the nicest blokes you could ever meet’ and ‘he wouldn’t harm a fly’ and ‘hardly a bad word to say about anybody’ – but about Nige truer words cannot be spoken. I saw him not often enough but I know he was a dedicated partner and husband to Pat and it is an honour to have known and spent time with him. RIP. Lots of love from Darren, Ivana, Jeremy & Jonathan Collins xxx

Darren Collins

I always looked forward to visiting your home on Sundays Nig. where you'd show me around your garden,The raised beds which held the vegetables and other things you were so proud of, and your enthusiasim seemed to grow on me. We'd talk about our mutual interest in model trains and how you intended to to create a railway layout in the loft, just waiting until time permitted. You were a really creative person and always took pride in what ever you did. You will be sorely missed

Alan Vardon

We'll always remember you uncle and brother so dear, with warmth, love, affection, and, good cheer... We'll keep you alive in the fond memories we have, safe and secure until our time is had... May you now be resting peacefully, until we all meet again...reunited, as a family, in harmony, and whole, once again...xxxx

Lisa Keedwell

Nigel was an amazing man I was his business partner for over 11 years we had a great time. he always had a smile and when things got tough he always found a way round it. i will miss my dear friend.

Chris Mullen

Nige, what can I say about him that other people haven't already said. This man was a true gentleman who certainly brightened my day when I spoke to him. His sudden passing has shocked us all at EBP we will all miss his infectious laughter and his sense of humour. I feel very privileged and honoured to have been part of Nige's working life. Rest in peace me old cockney sparrow. The Carrot cruncher.

Dave Ellis

Our Dear Uncle and Brother, Nigel... Those long, tender bear hugs, you so willingly gave, so comforting, so welcome, in so many ways.... Your giant presence, so protective, and warm, your kindly brown eyes twinkling, with affection and charm... There's so much we'll miss, oh uncle and brother, so left with treasured memories, held tightly and near... So sudden was your departure, no time for goodbyes, forever a void in all of our lives.

Lisa Keedwell

Nig, what a lovely man loved coming round cutting your hair (plus eyebrows) used to love listening to pat & your stories as nothing was ever simple, always looked forward to the tour round the house and garden. You will be sadly missed lots of love M xxx

Michelle Austin

From your Ever Loving Sis My dear brother who will be sadly missed But you will always be in my heart And you will always be a beautiful memory That has been enriched by the love that we shared
