Sad News

Postby Neil Dixon » February 25th, 2019, 1:01 pm

It is with great sadness that I have to announce Gordon Whitehead passed away peacefully in the early hours of today.
Many will remember Gordon for his many years of dedication and enthusiasm to DDMFC, BMFA, and the LMA.

Sad news indeed, Neil. Gordon was a really smashing person, very able scratch builder and always very approachable if you needed help. For his very significant contribution to the LMA - maintained well into his 80's - he was conferred honorary membership, his enthusiastic participation only being curtailed in recent times due to failing health.

Our sincere condolences to Morag and the family.

Keith & Marjorie Mitchell
