Bernard Houser

29th January 1928 -

30th July 2004

This site is dedicated to the memory of my Grandfather, Bernard Houser - Grandad Wales.

I remember my grandad as an endlessly inventive man, always coming up with new schemes or ideas - for me, as a child growing up, he was a wondeful grandfather to have - kind, patient, clever and generous.

Instead of reading at his funeral, this is my tribute to Grandad - putting his memoirs and some family photos of him throughout his life online. Over the last couple of years we got Grandad started using the internet and with a computer - and it always fascinated him, he was always eager to understand why and how something worked and we spent a good few hours showing him the ropes - it was on this first computer that he started the memoirs that are now on this site, that unfortunately he never finished.

I know he would have loved this, a virtual home for his memoirs - he would have been intrigued as to how it worked, and I hope proud that people could access his memoirs from anywhere in the world, at any time of day or night.

I will miss him greatly, as will his many friends, family and acquaintances.

Thankyou Grandad Wales for inspiring me in so many ways, lots of love from Tom x
