I was saddened to hear about the passing of Sir Tom Finney. My Dad was a life long Preston fan and Sir Tom was his hero, so when my Dad retired and he became involved with a company where he got to know and become friends with Sir Tom, things couldn't get much better for him! When my Dad was nearing the end of his life and in hospital, he had his eyes closed and was mumbling, the only words I recognised was not the name of his lovely wife....but that of Sir Tom. He attended my Dads funeral, which was very special, as my Dad would have been so proud. So many fond memories of a true gentleman. RIP Sir Tom Finney. XxRACHEL CHESWORTH
A true legend on the pitch, a status only magnified by his decency and humility off it. An example and role model just as much for now and the future as at any time in the past.John
Some people grew up on tales of Robin Hood and William Wallace, the people of preston were lucky to grow up on tales of there own legend Sir Tom Finney ripRay cairns

Never had the pleasure of seeing you play but you are and always will be a true Gentleman. Rest in Peace Sir TomVeronica
I saw him play a couple of times - complete control of the ball, complete control of himself, always did the right things.
I hope all plumbers will be as honest and hardworking as the Preston Plumber, and never try to cheat. I hope we will all remember the Preston Plumber when we turn a tap or flush a toilet today and in days to come. And when we see water following its course to rejoin the ocean from whence it came, I hope we reflect on the spirit of Tom Finney, an example to us all in life and in death. Rest In Peace, Sir, and THANK YOU!Peter
