A MAN suffered a heart attack and died in a Feltham pub car park last week has been named as 56-year-old Christopher Jarvis.
He died on Thursday July 22 in a car at the back of The Airman pub on Hanworth Road.
Police officers and the London Ambulance service attended the scene at around 12.20pm after reports of a male slumped motionless in the front of a vehicle. Mr Jarvis, of Gloucester Road, Feltham, was confirmed dead at the scene by paramedics from the London Ambulance Service.
Hanworth Road was closed shortly after police arrived and re-opened at 6pm that day.
Pub manager Jan Goldcrest, 60, had been on holiday at the time of the death, but expressed her sadness after hearing the news this week. She said: "He was a regular customer, he would come in twice a day, you could set the clock by him. He wasn't a heavy drinker though. He was a lovely, adorable person, I was quite shocked when I heard about what happened to him."
Mrs Goldcrest has been working at the pub for just over a year. She said that staff plan to send a wreath to his funeral and a plaque will be installed on the back of his favourite chair.
She added: "I am really shocked, I keep looking over at the corner where he liked to sit and I find it hard to believe he is not there. When you are so used to seeing someone they become like family."
An inquest was opened and adjourned at Fulham Coroner's Court on Monday July 26. Next of kin have been informed and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
