Tributes paid to popular family man
Ian Smith, or "Smiggy" as he was known to teammates at Salthouse Bowling Club, died from a heart attack in August while out with his wife Debbie.
More than 250 guests turned up on September 2 to pay their respects to the former green keeper and captain, and they donated more than £700 to his beloved club.
Mrs Smith, 48, said: "People just can't believe it, we are absolutely floored by it.
"He was in good health and there was nothing leading up to it.
"I am so overwhelmed with all the support.
