I was very sad to hear from Marilyn that her father Percy Norton had passed away 9th July at the grand age of 103. He was Patron & Life member of The Smooth Haired Dachshund Club, and a long standing member of his local club The Eastern Counties Dachshund Club. Percy was still attending shows with Marilyn up to 6 weeks ago. He was also a keen fisherman and last year appeared in the Trout Fisherman Magazine as the oldest person to be still fishing. We will miss him at the shows you learnt a lot talking to Percy and he often had a cheeky joke to tell. To Marilyn & her Sister Angela our thoughts are with you.
Percy’s Funeral is on Monday 31st July at 2pm, at St. Faiths Crem, Horsham St. Faiths, Norwich NR10 3LF
