There was a massive turnout for the funeral of popular sporting all-rounder Tyrone Wildman on Tuesday.
Scores of people packed into Hastings Crematorium to pay their respects to a man who touched the lives of so many with his warm personality and ever-present smile.
Tributes were read by former Sidley Cricket Club captain Simon Reynolds and ex-Hastings Priory CC skipper Jason Finch, emphasising not only Tyrone’s ability but also his friendly nature.
Many of those in attendance retired to Sidley CC for a wake during the afternoon and later to Venuu in George Street for a more upbeat evening gathering with a Jamaican theme.
Tyrone, who excelled in a number of fields but notably bodybuilding and cricket, died suddenly on Saturday December 18 aged 59.
