It is with sadness that I have to advise of the death of Honorary Member Reg Jackson following a stroke at the grand old age of 101 years and nine months. Reg was an Honorary Member of the Forum in recognition of his distinguished service and contribution over many years and I’m sure many members will remember his last Forum appearance at the age of 100 when he shared some recollections and memories from his long life displaying the lucidity and presentational ability of a much younger man!! It is the passing of an era in the Forum’s history as Reg was a founder member of the Forum with nearly 38 years membership having twice being Chairman and given 26 (official) talks. Thus far he is the only Forum Member to reach his centenary years and is the oldest member of the Forum ever.
Reg’s funeral will be held at St. Robert’s Pannal at 2p.m. on Monday July 13th.
