Victor William Coe
05.06.1931 – 20.11.2018
He spent his childhood in the Suffolk countryside growing up against the backdrop of WW2, with his sister Hilda and brothers Jim and George. National Service saw him move to the city as an RAF Policeman at Uxbridge where he met his first wife, Helen. He carried on to have a successful career in the Metropolitan Police, where he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant.
He had two children with Helen, Brian and Diane. In later life, after losing Helen, he met Garry and they married. This allowed him to fill his twilight years with a great deal more love, of which he had so much to give.
He achieved so much in his life. He was a Royal Horticultural Society committee member & show steward, a National Vegetable Society judge, a Daffodil Society judge, Mid-Southern Daffodil Society Chairman & Show Secretary, a Middlesex Guild judge, Chair of Perivale Community Association, Horsenden Allotments and Gardens Association President, and organiser & member of Perivale Bowls Group.
On top of this, he was an active grower and shower of everything horticultural, winning countless prizes along the way, and in 2016 was awarded a Vice Presidency of the National Daffodil Society for his service. It is fair to say he liked being busy!
His Epitaph was “He liked real butter”
