Norman Molyneux

20 June 1929 - 20 February 2015

Norman Molyneux was a loving and loyal husband to my granny, Audrey Molyneux and I know he wanted to spend as much time together as possible. He was an amazing, caring father to Yvonne Geddes and Dianne Mcgregor. And he was a loving, funny, and comforting grandpa to his four grandchildren, Aimee, Daniel, Lauren and Lewis. Norman cared for his whole family. He loved to spend time with them, at any chance he could get. He loved to go on holidays, both with just himself and Audrey, where they travelled and explored parts of the world. They also then went on many cruises with my other grandparents Sandy and Frances Geddes where they travelled, got drunk on one drink and danced all night. Norman was loved by so many people and when you were with him you couldn’t help but smile. He was quite a shy, quiet man, but when he spoke it was always absolutely hilarious and great timing. He meant the world to his family and his friends and he will never be forgotten.
