Hundreds of mourners turned out to pay their respects to a sports administrator.
Clive Hamilton, 78, of North Common Road, Uxbridge, died of cancer on October 31 with his wife Margaret by his side.
Mr Hamilton was an ambassador for sports in Hillingdon; first as a PE teacher at Vyners School and the former John Penrose School in Harefield, and later as chairman of Hillingdon Sports Council.
Last Friday he was honoured with a celebration of his life at Brunel University, in Cleveland Road, Uxbridge, where numerous friends and colleagues paid their tributes.
Mrs Hamilton said: "About 150 people came to the cremation and 300-plus to Brunel. It was very moving. Everybody just appreciated the chance to be there and celebrate Clive's life. Everybody had a very personal memory, and that was very special.
"It had its sad moments but there were so many lovely things said about him."
Mr Hamilton, the father of Jane, 47, and grandfather of Holly, seven, received several accolades for his contributions to sport.
He also helped develop the butterfly stroke in Britain, and played more than 500 matches for his school's old boys football team, Old Manoronians.
Mrs Hamilton would like to thank everyone who helped organise the memorial, in particular Peter Jones.
