Mr D Blight

Playing Place

THE FUNERAL service has taken place at Camborne Parish Church, followed by cremation at Treswithian Downs Crematorium, Camborne, for Danny Blight, aged 59, previously of Camborne and St Austell, but latterly of Playing Place.

Boys' Brigade members formed a guard of honour outside the church, and police colleagues served as pallbearers.

Approximately 250 people attended the service, which was conducted by the Rev Mike Firbank.

Danny's daughter, Anna, read the Cornish love song I'm Some Glad.

Eulogies were given by Chief Constable Stephen Otter, QPM, and Malcolm Godolphin, a friend from Danny's Boys Brigade days.

Danny was the second child of Hazel and the late Donald, and first attended St Meriadoc C of E Primary School, Camborne, and then Camborne Secondary Modern School.

At an early age he joined the Lifeboys and then the Boys' Brigade and had great times in both.

At the age of 16, he was awarded the Queen's Badge.

Through the Boys Brigade he was associated with Camborne Parish Church for a number of years, during which he was also a bellringer.

At the age of 16 Danny went to work in the accounts department at Holmans.

He stayed in this role for two years before joining Devon and Cornwall Constabulary as a police cadet at the age of 18, for which he was stationed at Plymouth.

At 19 he joined as a police constable and went on to serve for 32 years as a police officer, both in the uniform and CID sections and was stationed at Paignton, St Austell, St Ives, Truro and Camborne police stations.

He then worked part-time as a crimes screening officer at Camborne Police Station for a further nine years.

In 1994 Danny was awarded a Commendation by the Lord High Sheriff of Cornwall for his bravery, determination and devotion to duty.

While arresting two suspects for burglary he was attacked and repeatedly struck on the head with a tenon saw.

Despite receiving serious head wounds, with considerable loss of blood, he pursued his fleeing assailant, caught him and restrained him until the arrival of other police officers.

Danny was a beach lover and spent many happy hours on the beaches in Cornwall in the company of his children, Dale and Anna, and his boxer dog, Katie. D

uring his last few years Danny took up ballroom, Latin and sequence dancing and spent many evenings on the dance floor.

It was through dancing that he met Wendy, whom he married in July 2010 while at St Julia's Hospice.

Despite being given only a few months to live in April 2010, Danny took the news on the chin and was determined to enjoy his life deriving much pleasure from the simple things like watching the birds in the garden, or sitting watching the sea or dogs playing in the waves, and visits to his much loved family and his granddaughters, Jenna, Elissa, Katelyn and Holly.

Danny will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Donations were for Cornwall Hospice Care and total £503.30.

Mr CG Rundle Par

THE FUNERAL service for Mr Clarence George Rundle, known as George, aged 83, of Par, has taken place at St Blaise Church, St Blazey, followed by committal at Glynn Valley Crematorium, Bodmin.

George was born on May 1, 1928, in St Blazey Post Office, the fourth son of Charles and Ruby Rundle.

He grew up in a happy but competitive sporting environment with his brothers Sidney, Rodney (both deceased) and Vernon, all excelling at football and cricket.

His school years were spent at St Blazey and Fowey schools.

On leaving school at 15 he started work in the Post Office, with his father.

After National Service in the Army, he worked for SNW as a builder's clerk.

He later moved to work for ECC, from where he retired as the shares registration manager.

On retirement from ECC he spent ten happy years working for Cornish Racing Services.

Sport played a major part in his life and his first sporting love was football – during his time in the Army he played games for Spurs and Portsmouth, turning down the opportunity of a professional career due to homesickness.

He played nearly 400 games for St Blazey before a knee injury ended his career, aged just 29.

He had played for the county as an amateur before turning professional for St Blazey, in 1951, on £3 per week – his weekly wage as a builder's clerk was only £2.50 at the time.

He won numerous honours including three Cornwall Senior Cup wins, one of which was against local rivals St Austell, when the attendance was 9,000, at Poltair Park, and 6,500 for the replay at St Blazey.

He was described in the Western Morning News on the occasion of his 350th St Blazey appearance as the most popular and gifted inside forward in Cornish soccer.

George also played cricket for St Blazey and always said that one of his proudest sporting moments was when he captained St Blazey to their only County Championship win in 1955.

St Blazey Institute and the snooker table were his second home and he spent many hours practising and playing snooker, billiards and table tennis.

He also played snooker for the county and was successful in the individual, pairs and team county championships.

He was proud of the fact that he played against the legendary Joe Davis, even though after George broke off, Davis cleared the table with a century break.

George married Maureen in 1957 and they started their married life at Lamb Park in Par.

They were devoted to each other throughout 54 happy years of marriage.

They had a son, Adrian, five grandchildren and a great grandson.

George was a loving devoted husband, dad, granddad and great granddad.

He was extremely proud of his family and of their achievements.

He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
