His family said in a statement: “Clodge was a loving husband, father and bampy. He was young at heart and such a family man who absolutely adored all his children and grandchildren.

“He was one in a million and had lots of friends who adored him.

“He was a hard worker and quite often worked seven days a week. He was a keen gardener, loved a game of poker, fishing and going down the river on a kayak.

“He was also a keen Arsenal supporter and would try and go to the matches with his son.”
