Mr G. E. Chilcott

MR George Edward Chilcott, of Alford Street, Grantham, has died in Grantham Hospital. He was 66.

Born in Hampstead, Camden, London, he was the youngest son of Philip and Ruth Chilcott.

The husband of Ann, he was father to Mark and Sarah, grandfather to Rachelle, Hollie, Naomi, Pip and Joseph, great-grandfather to Jake, Mason and Sophie Grace and father-in-law to Steve and Caroline.

At the age of 14 he moved with his family to Great Gonerby. It was there that he met Ann, and they were married in Paignton in 1968, returning to Grantham in 1969, where they have lived ever since.

Most of his working life was spent in the haulage industry, working for several companies, most recently for S. and J. Wright. He was always at his happiest when he was out on the road.

Mr Chilcott was an avid golfer and long time member of Stoke Rochford Golf Club. He really enjoyed narrow boat holidays and more recently moved on to larger cruises.
