Farewell to Tim Cordell: A friend, loyal fan and selfless volunteer

3 June 2015

Family and friends of Tim Cordell will gather at Cheltenham Crematorium South Chapel today (1pm) to pay their final respects to a much loved husband, father, grandfather and brother.

Tim died peacefully on May 12 surrounded by his family after a short illness.

He had been working as a volunteer at Cheltenham Town, using his expertise and experience in marketing and helping to put on events such as the Open Day at Seasons last summer, Sue Ryder Day and the Family Fun Day on Easter Monday.

Robins chairman Paul Baker paid tribute to Tim's generosity and influence during his time at Whaddon Road, during which he became a popular figure with both staff and supporters.

"It's hugely sad and Tim and I go back many years, right back to our days at Cheltenham Grammar School," Baker said.

"He loved the club to bits and was a season ticket holder for a long time. Since his retirement he has been working as a volunteer and we had a meeting only a few weeks ago about all his ideas and plans for the coming season.

"To lose him is hugely tragic for all his family and friends and also for the football club. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family and I'd just like to thank him for all he did, he will be sorely missed."

Tim was also known for his work the Sunrise Rotary Club in Cheltenham and he volunteered as a guide at Sudeley Castle.
