Graham Axon R.I.P. (1945 - 2014) Sadly missed

Graham passed away peacefully on the 4th of January following a prolonged illness.

His funeral servce on January 15th was absolutely bulging at the seams with standing room only such was his popularity and humour.

He will be mainly remembered for his activities mostly in the 80’s and 90’s and also for the particular social slant which he brought to the proceedings.

Maybe he was one of the old guard, but he certainly livened things up on the social scene here in Stockport and for many years on the annual European athletic tours every October.

He enjoyed "playing the fool" and was regarded as the "club card" for many years!

His best 10 kms time was a little over 36 minutes in the Manchester city football club race and also in the Oldham race from Boundary park.
