Fundraising page set up for funeral of young father Robbie Fleming

By Mark Edwards

A fundraising page has been set up to help pay for the funeral of a young father-of-one who died suddenly at home in Lisburn.

Robbie Fleming, who was 26-years-old and a fan of Liverpool Football Club, passed away at his home on Tuesday.

A service was held at Ronnie Thompson's Funeral Church on Friday, which was followed by committal at Roselawn Crematorium.

Following the service, Vicky Shaw, who is the aunt of Mr Fleming's son Jack (8), set up a fundraising page to help cover the costs of the funeral and to make a memorial bench or tree in memory of the 26-year-old.

The page has already raised £2,075 towards its £5,000 target.

Ms Shaw wrote: "On Tuesday 5th June we were hit with the devastating news that Robbie had passed away suddenly.

"We all know that a funeral is very costly and the family have enough on their mind to be worrying about costs so I have decided to set up a page to help them.

"Also giving Jack and the rest of his family somewhere to go to in his memory.

"Robbie left an impact on everyone he met and he was very much loved by all his friends and family so it would be great if we could all help out in any way possible at this very sad time and hoping this will give his family some comfort."

Mr Fleming worked at Paramount Pizza Lisburn since he was 17.

He is survived by his parents Vernon and Alison, his brothers Jordan and Jamie, and his son Jack.
