JOHN HEATON: No formal funeral ceremony

Brian Buck has sent in the following statement regarding John Heaton’s Funeral:

“A number of people connected with cycle speedway have contacted me to ask for details of the late John Heaton’s funeral arrangements.

“I am authorised by John’s wife Barbara to let everyone know that there will be no formal funeral ceremony, John having made arrangements himself with Pure Cremations Limited for an informal funeral without mourners, with his ashes being supplied to his immediate family at a later date.

“This was John’s own wish, and the Heaton family are happy for this information to be included on the 3318 website, and also wish to extend their grateful thanks for all the messages and for the good opinion that the cycle speedway fraternity had for him, which have been a great comfort and consolation to them during this difficult time.”
