A procession of lorry drivers came together to pay tribute to an "amazing" husband, dad and grandad who died of a rare illness.
Andrew Seal, from Dersingham, died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn on June 9.
Doctors had initially suspected the 64-year-old was suffering with cancer but, in late May, he was diagnosed with amyloidosis.
The condition results in a build-up of abnormal proteins which damage internal organs including the liver and kidneys.
Mr Seal's wife, Rhona, said it had been "devastating" to see her husband decline so quickly.
On Monday, a funeral procession of lorries from his workplace, Gold Star Metal Traders, travelled from his home on Manor Road to Mintlyn Crematorium in Bawsey.
Before becoming a lorry driver in the 1990s, Mr Seal ran Manor Bakery in Dersingham and delivered bread to the Sandringham Estate.
A JustGiving page has been launched in his memory to raise money for amyloidosis research. Visit justgiving.com/fundraising/alison-fishet.
