As the video went viral, the ice cream man's brother Savash Turkel told Sky News he had worked as an ice cream man for 40 years. He said: “It was a passion for him. He had always worked as an ice cream man, and he went on to set up an ice cream factory in Lewisham in the early 2000s.
“He was very popular among customers and other ice cream men, if it wasn’t for the pandemic I think lots more ice cream men would have been part of the procession.
“He was a well-loved family man, a good father, and he was loved by everybody he met.”
A truly sweet way to send a loved one off, this shows Hasan was really loved by his community!
