Service of thanksgiving to be held for murder victim Robert Flowerday

A service of thanksgiving is to be held for murdered retired teacher Robert Flowerday.

Mr Flowerday was found dead at his home in Mill Road, Crumlin last Sunday.

The 64-year-old was a retired school teacher who taught maths at Antrim Grammar School and had since been tutoring.

Mr Flowerday lived alone and was described as a "very nice gentleman" who was a "very central part of the local community".

Hundreds of people attended a candlelight vigil in Co Antrim to honour Mr Flowerday earlier this week.

The service of thanksgiving for his life is to be held in Crumlin Presbyterian Church on Monday February 5 at 2pm and and he will be laid to rest afterwards at Crumlin New Cemetery.

His death notice reads that he was the "beloved son of the late Edward and Bevan and loving brother of Fred, Patricia, Edward, Alan and the late David.

"Deeply regretted by his sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces."
