I received the following information:

It's with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Mick Barr on 16th April, 2008 in hospital. Michael aged 67 years of Heckington and formerly of Leicester. Former owner of Mick Barr Motorcycle Services and Evington Motorcycles.

Mick was one of those special people who everybody liked, a well respected mechanic meant that he touched many more lives than might normally be expected. He will be greatly missed.

Much loved husband of Glenyse, father of Jeanette and Rachel, father in law of Scott and Simon and a wonderful grandfather to Ethan and Morgan.

The Funeral took place at Gilroes Crematorium, Leicester on Monday 28th April at 3.15 p.m. Donations if desired to be shared between The Leicestershire, Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Appeal and Macmillan Cancer Support and to be sent to J E Severs Funeral Service, 23 Main Road, Little Hale, Sleaford, Lincs. NG34 9BA. Telephone +44 01529 460339.

I have posted a few links below as the Leicester Mercury have also done a 3/4 page tribute to my father and they have also done a follow on story after the funeral.
