Further to Mick's earlier posting re the passing of Brian, I sadly noted Brian's Obituary in the local paper today and confirm that the funeral service for Brian will be held on Wednesday next, 28 July, at Outwood Parish Church at 12 noon followed by, cremation at Wakefield Crematorium (family flowers only, donations in lieu will be given to Wakefield Hospice c/o Harpins Funeral Service, Wakefield).
I recall Brian joining West Yorkshire Foundries in 1967 initially as a Patternmaker, developing in to much wider roles as the Company contracted.
In later years, Brian was appointed a Shop Steward and in was in that capacity that I remember him best, especially for his dedication to his members, his fairness to all and also his great sense of dry humour. If memory serves, Brian retired from WYF/Motorcast some 6 years ago.
I trust that those who knew Brian, will join me in extending our deepest sympathies to his wife, Kathleen, daughters Fiona and Linda and to all his family.
