OBITUARIES.



" We remember our friends who have recently died and,
 our thoughts and kind wishes go out to their relatives "

We are very sad to announce the passing of Les Haines (our webmaster).

Les died peacefully in his sleep, at home in Bovey Tracey on 28th April 2015 aged 86 years. Les had suffered cancer for many years, but maintained his cheerful outlook on life, and his sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by many.



Terry Williams, our Minutes Secretary, died peacefully in his sleep in Pontefract Hospital in the early hours of 4th June 2009.   Our condolences to his Wife Dot.

Our ex Chairman, Jeff Dales, died last night, on the 22nd September 2011.
Jeff's Daughter sent Terry Barry an E mail with the details of his Funeral, which

I  received the following message from Terry Barry.


Hello Terry
As promised the following are the funeral arrangements for dad.

Monday 3rd October 1230hours at Chanterlands Avenue Crematorium,
Hull HU5 4EF.

We would be pleased to see anyone who feels able to make the journey. Dad had many happy memories about his time with both the RAF West Kirby Association and his original National Service experience. He told us several stories and we have many photographs of the commemorative stone and flag with which he was involved. I am sure that he has provided photographs for you also.

Please contact me if you need any more information.

Best wishes
