Family, friends and neighbours were saddened to hear of the death of Trevor (Charlie) Adlard, aged 57.
Charlie was born in Kettsby near Alford, the youngest of nine children.
It was a farming family who worked the land and knew the countryside well.
Charlie attended South Ormsby Primary School and Alford Secondary School.
He had a happy childhood helping his father with the farm work and looking after the “old peoples’” gardens.
When he finished his school years, he went straight into farm work.
He worked for Grants at Tathwell, then at Cadwell and finally for Bourn’s in Wragby.
He was a hard working man, knowledgeable, respected and well liked.
In 1988 he met Julie, who became his wife in 1990 when they married in Louth.
They made their home in Maidenwell and Cadwell and finally in Wragby, where they spent their time together for just over eight years and sadly where he passed away.
They had so many happy memories enjoying days out with the family.
The couple worked hard together to support and care for their family.
Charlie was so interested in tractors and especially the four-trax.
As a young man, he had loved playing darts and was always a keen follower of football on the TV especially when Liverpool played.
A gentle giant, he adored his time with the children and grand-children shared with his wife Julie.
He is now survived by his wife Julie; step-children Allan and wife Sarah; Shaun and Danni, Louise and Patrick; grandchildren Chloe, Stacey, Robyn, James, Aaron and Grace.
The funeral service was held at All Saints Church, Wragby.
The Rev Mark Holden officiated at the service and arrangements were made by Horncastle Co-op.
