MORE than 200 mourners attended the funeral of well-known Dorridge musician Jack Nunn last week.

Jack died aged 84 after being diagnosed with cancer just 15 weeks ago.

He'd had a life-long passion for music, especially playing the trumpet, which made him popular in his native Solihull.

His wife Pam described the funeral held at Oakley Wood in Warwickshire last Wednesday, as "incredible". "People from all walks of life came to show their respect," she said.

She described her husband as, "the most adorable sweetie" and "the kindest most generous man."

"He will be missed terribly in the music world and for his contribution to up-andcoming musicians," she added.

When he first started out as a musician, Jack played for the British Territorial Army (BTA) band.

He moved to Sutton Coldfield from Bishop Stockford, Hertfordshire, when he married Pam, but later moved to Solihull where he lived for 50 years.

In Solihull, he played with Chadwick Manor Hotel's Saturday Night band and at the Solihull Town Hall in its glory days.

He also played with the Ronnie Hancox band and had later taught pupils in Solihull.

Jack and Pam have three daughters, Susan, Jackie and Jane, who is the head teacher at Monkspath Junior School and five grandchildren.
