On Friday 16th March at approximately 16.15pm Coldridge lost one of it's very own. Local farmer and and land owner Rodney (Rod) Stanbury sadly passed away at home after suffering with aggressive terminal cancer aged only 58. He was devotedly nursed and cared for by his wife Christine. He also leaves behind two sons Shaun and Carl, daughter in-law Sarah and three young grandchildren, mother Mary, brother Paul and wife Mary, sister Jill and husband Louis as well as several nieces and nephews.
Rod was a Christian man, and from the onset of his diagnosis at the beginning of this year he was gracious, dignified and a true witness to his faith.
From a family point of view he was always there for us, not only as a listening ear but would willingly stop everything he was doing if he thought he could be of any help to anyone. He was full of fun and more often than not the joker. Diplomacy was another of his virtue's as he saw two sides to any argument and would do his very best to keep the peace. He would enthusiastically get involved in anything you were doing and speared nothing in giving all his love to his family and friends. We all loved him very much, the initial shock from the first day of learning of his illness, watching him go through his awful treatment without giving any complaints and now losing him at such an early age has had a profound effect on us all. He has left a big hole in all our lives that can never be filled. - Ray Taylor.

A 'Celebration Service' of Rod's life will take place at 14.30pm on Saturday 24th March 2012 at the:-
Jubilee Christian Centre, Cleaveanger Farm, Coldridge, Crediton, EX17 6BE.

Rod is going to be laid to rest in Norfolk on Thursday 29th March at 14.30pm, a decision he made some years ago saying " only fair darling you came to Devon for me and when the time comes I want to go to Norfolk for you!"

Why Norfolk? - Chris was born in Mattishall a small village in Norfolk where her family and ancestors go back over 200 years as not only business people but distinguished members and preachers of the Methodist and later Evangelical Churches. Rod will be finally be laid to rest in the family plot it Mattishall Cemetery.
