In Loving Memory of


Mark Pickering

Mark was a loving Son to Dave, devoted Dad to Matthew, much-loved Brother to Steve, Gavin and Stuart and Uncle to Ross, Kyan, Edan and James.

Mark was loved by many friends, of which he met through all walks of life. He was a very caring man and incredibly resilient. A man of immense talent and passion for the things he loved.

Not many passions in Mark’s life outweighed his love for his football club, West Ham United. This was a huge part of his life and was more than just a weekend hobby to him.

We would love for you to share your memories of Mark in this book and any messages you have.
