Legendary comic Norman Collier's funeral details announced
Family and friends will be saying their final farewells to a legendary comedian next week.
The funeral service of Norman Collier will be held on Wednesday, March 27, at St Helen’s Church in Welton at 2pm.
The service is for family and friends and will be followed by a private interment.
Norman, 87, passed away at Brough Manor Residential Care Home on Thursday, March 14m after battling Parkinson’s disease for seven years.
Paying tribute to the comedian last week – best known for his broken microphone and chicken routines – his family described him as a “kind, decent and hilarious man”.
His daughter Karen and son-in-law John Ainsley said: “He loved Hull and would never phone for a gig – people called him purely because of his talent.”
Norman passed away at 6.05pm with his family at his bedside, after they had spent their final day with him.
In tribute to the comedian’s humour, everyone attending the funeral is asked to wear bright clothes.
The family have requested no flowers, but instead mourners can donate to Parkinson’s UK.
