Hundreds in tribute to Sussex estate agent
More than 600 people packed the church and grounds for the funeral of highly regarded businessman Glenn Mishon.
The service at St Margaret's Church in Rottingdean yesterday was attended by a host of family, friends and business leaders wanting to pay their respects.
Mr Mishon was a leading light in the Sussex property scene after setting up Mishon Mackay estate agents with Alex Mackay more than 30 years ago.
He died at his home in Hove at the age of 56 earlier this month following a battle against cancer.
Among those paying tribute at the service were Mr Mackay, crime writer Peter James, former Brighton and Hove Albion player Adam Virgo, who
is Mr Mishon's son-in-law, and songwriter Tony Macauley.
Others present included Mr Mishon's wife Barbara, his children Jess and James, former Albion manager Dean Wilkins, Argus editor Michael Beard and long term friends Chris Weatherstone and Steven Gordon.
The service was led by Father Martin Morgan, who was a close friend of
Those paying tribute described Mr Mishon as a man who loved his family and friends, and although he was a shrewd businessman he always kept things in perspective and never complained even when desperately ill.
A wake was held at American Express Community Stadium following the service.
Mishon Mackay’s network of offices covers Brighton, Hove, Portslade, Mid Sussex and London.
When he was younger, he had no plans to go into estate agency at all, instead trying his hand first as a singer and then in the fashion industry.
He was the eldest of three brothers and born in Brighton to an estate agent father and a mother who worked in fashion.
