Toby Kendrick Obituary, Death -Please be advised that in order for our staff to be present at the funeral of Toby Kendrick, one of our closest friends and most devoted customers, our doors will be closed at noon on Wednesday, November 16. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
After a very brief course of treatment, Toby fought courageously against his cancer until the day he passed away on October 27.
The man was a joy to be around, and during every skirmish, he would do his best to get involved in the action like no other player while still maintaining a smile on his face. During our time spent at the woodland site, it’s possible that some of you got the chance to chat with Toby. If so, congratulations! If that’s the case, you can count yourself among the lucky ones. If he took damage, he would shrug it off, run back to spawn, and then come back with an even stronger resolve to finish what he had started.
This may have something to do with the sugar rush he got from buying £10 worth of chocolate from the site shop every morning, and then sometimes again during lunch when the ice cream van wasn’t there. Alternatively, this may have nothing to do with the sugar rush he got from doing either of those things.
Toby would take the time to send me emails asking how all of us were doing while we were under lockdown. He would also include some truly incredible photos of himself dressed in a variety of different camouflage patterns that were unique to him. I decided to take advantage of this opportunity to share them with you because I know that just thinking about them will make me smile, and I’m hoping that those of you who knew him will have the same reaction.
