The funeral of George Richard Brumby, aged 73 years of Claxby, was held at Lincoln Crematorium.
The Rev Michael Cartwright officiated at the service and arrangements were by J Marshall of Market Rasen.
George, the eldest of five brothers and two sisters, was born at Cabourne Parva in 1940, moving to Claxby in 1945.
He attended Claxby C of E Primary School and then went onto, what was then called, the Market Rasen Modern School.
When he first left school, he lived and worked at Corner House Farm, Claxby and later Claxby House Farm, then owned by A W & J B Willey.
The farm was later taken over by Wilmot Bros. of Owersby.
Until his retirement, George worked as the Railway Crossing Gate Keeper at Claxby.
His hobbies were nature, walking and stamp collecting.
He was a familiar sight around the village.
Although George became ill soon after last Christmas, he remained active up to his last day, doing what was important to him.
