MORE than 50 biker friends formed the funeral procession from Haslemere to Guildford Crematorium last Saturday morning for much-loved Martin Eames, who died aged 53 from throat cancer.

A key member of Nobodys biker group, he continued to attend rallies abroad to raise money for children’s charities after being diagnosed.

His coffin was carried to the funeral by a vintage motorcycle and sidecar.

His mother June Eames said: “We were completely overwhelmed. Friends came from all over England and from abroad.

“We laid flowers at some of his favourite places – Stony Jumps in Churt and Frensham Pond.

“I’m so proud of him. He also designed stained glass windows for Chichester Cathedral and was a guitarist and a music teacher.

“He was a craftsman and carried on working right to the end from his bed in Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham.

“He asked me for a list of tools, including a saw, and made a walking stick.

“The idea of the rallies was to raise money for local children and they also gave bubble mixture to the children, so we had bubbles at the crematorium.”

A former Farnham College student and a keen sportsman, ‘Marty’ lived in Elstead. His son Adam died aged three and he is survived by his daughters Molly and Emily.
