Paul O’Grady’s Final Journey: Funeral Procession Details Revealed

TV presenter and comedian Paul O’Grady, who lived in the village of Aldington for more than two decades, passed away last month from sudden cardiac arrhythmia. He was 67. O’Grady’s husband, Andre Portasio, has expressed his gratitude for the support and love he has received from locals following the loss of his beloved partner.

In a post on local Facebook groups, Portasio thanked supporters for their “kind messages, beautiful flowers, and thoughtful texts of condolences” which have brought him comfort and solace during this difficult time. He also expressed his “deepest gratitude” for the “overwhelming outpouring of support and love” from the community.

O’Grady, who was a well-known face in the village, was known to have cared a lot about his local community. Therefore, his husband announced that a funeral procession would pass through Aldington before heading to the church as a way of marking O’Grady’s affection for the area. Residents were invited to stand on Roman Road, Forge Hill or New Road Hill between 2.10pm and 2.45pm on Thursday to pay their respects. However, Mr Portasio asked them to “respect the villagers and the local area” during the procession.

According to local media, O’Grady attended summer fetes, supported the primary school, and even judged a local dog show held on the village green last year. His presence in the community was deeply valued, and many locals were devastated by his sudden passing.

O’Grady married Mr Portasio, a former professional dancer, in 2017. The couple shared a deep love and were known for their devotion to each other. They had been together for more than a decade before tying the knot and were often seen out and about in the village, enjoying the local sights and sounds.

Despite his fame, O’Grady was known for his down-to-earth personality and his willingness to engage with those around him. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and fans, and his legacy will continue to live on in the hearts and memories of those who knew and loved him.
