It is with sadness that I have to advise of the passing of Ray Snowden.
Ray has died in Bilton Hall Nursing Home after a year of declining health. With Malcolm Wood he was a regular worshipper at Wesley Chapel and he joined the Forum in October 2010 at the beginning of Malcolm’s year as Chairman. Most Tuesdays after the meeting Malcolm and Ray would join their wives for lunch usually in a village pub.
It was Ray who suggested that our collection at the Christmas lunch in 2016 should be shared between the Hospice and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, enduring good causes which he strongly supported. Sadly Ray was too ill to attend this season to hear the talk about changes in the Y.A.A. from Mike Bevington.
The Forum sends its condolences to his wife Mavis, who herself has been in poor health over recent months. Malcolm and his wife Anita have been very loyal in their support of the family.
Funeral details will be posted here when known or advised.
