Tractor takes builder on his final journey to Fenland Crematorium
A TRACTOR adorned with Arsenal Football Club flags was chosen by a family as a personal way for Kym Lutwyche to make his final journey to Fenland Crematorium.
The 51-year-old builder died after undergoing a double lung transplant and heart by-pass surgery at Papworth Hospital. The funeral service was at March on Tuesday.
His son Lee said: “He was a real character and we thought he would love it. He was a great Arsenal supporter and had always been fond of tractors and had two of his own which he loved spending time on.”
Mr Lutwyche of Gemlee Cottage, Gorefield, moved with his wife, Dawn, son and daughter, Gemma, to Gorefield 17 years ago from Enfield. Lee said: “He wanted a better lifestyle for his family and he built the house himself.”
Mr Lutwyche, who suffered from emphysema went into Papworth Hospital on Christmas Eve to undergo the double lung transplant and heart by-pass surgery.
