IT was with great sadness to read of the passing of Big Issue seller Tim Fisher.

Tim was quiet, uncomplaining and both a cheer and inspiration in adversity. His presence will be sorely missed. He was a great example of the spirit of humanity having nothing and wanting nothing.

In all weathers he kept his vigil and at Christmas donned his Father Christmas outfit.

Thank you for the Wharfedale Gazette/Observer tribute to a great character and one of nature’s true gentlemen.
