Tributes have been paid to the man who died after having a heart attack at Romford train station.

Graeme Moisey, 65, of Avelon Road, Rainham died in hospital yesterday (Tuesday, April 1) after he had a cardiac arrest on his way to work.

Graeme’s oldest son, also called Graeme, 36, said that his dad was someone who “always helped others” and was a Romford Raiders fan.

He said that his dad used to selll “predict the score” tickets at the ice hockey team’s home games - where half the money would go to the winner and half to the club - and that he had a skill for charming people into getting them to take part.

“He would always go out of his way to help other people.

“He was always doing things for other people” said the 36-year-old who lived with his dad.

Graeme was a father to two and a grandfather, and his son said that he was well known in the pubs that he used to drink in - The George II in High Street, Hornchurch and the Royal British Legion on the same road.

He said: “I lived with him with my wife, and up until a little while ago I used to spend a lot of time in the pub with him and we had some happy memories together.”

His dad was on his way to work at Nicholls and Clarke building merchants in Dagenham, when he suffered a heart attack.

Ambulances were called to the scene at around 7am but he sadly passed away in hospital.

Graeme said that his dad had been undergoing treatment for liver and lung cancer, and was asking that anyone who knew him and would like to make a donation then to make it to Macmillan Cancer Research as those nurses were looking after him.

He told the Recorder: “We would like to thank everyone that was at Romford station and who assisted with helping my dad, that includes the staff at Romford station and to the emergency services that helped.”
