A "gentleman" who lost a "long, hard-fought battle" with cancer...tributes paid to Fleet man

A terminally ill man from Fleet whose family pleaded for help to save him on Eagle Radio, has died.

Glen, who was 37, had been suffering from a rare form of lymphoma cancer.

His daughter Tiyana spoke to us last month  just days before he died at Frimley Park Hospital on March 23.

She and her mum had been fundraising for Glen to have a  last chance at treatment abroad.

Tributes paid to Glen say he was a "gentleman" and a "warrior" who fought a long,  hard battle.

A statement on Glen's Facebook appeal page last month said:  "Dear All, It pains me to have to write this to you, but after a long, hard-fought battle, Heaven gained another angel after midnight on 23rd March. Glen was admitted to Frimley Park Hospital on Tuesday with pneumonia but sadly in his weakened state his body was unable to fight it. He passed away in peace surrounded by his loved ones.

"He'll be remembered as an amazing husband to Nicci and an incredible Dad to Tiyana.

"Anyone who met Glen knew he put the 'gentle' in gentleman but he was also a warrior who bravely battled against the c-word for over 11 years.

"Nicci and Tiyana would like to sincerely thank you all for your kind donations which gave hope when all seemed lost. Now that the money raised is no longer required for immunotherapy treatment, it'll go towards funeral costs and supporting Glen's immediate family. A portion will be put aside for Tiyana's trust fund.

"If you would prefer a refund of your money (less any fees incurred by GoFundMe) please contact me no later than March 31st.

"Thank you once again, from the bottom of our hearts for your kind thoughts and donations." 

The family have decided to make a significant donation to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Glen's memory and their gratitude for the support they have all received.
