Member Joe Goodlet 1929 - 2001
It is with great sadness I write of the untimely death of
one of our members Joe Goodlet. Joe, 72, suffered a massive heart
attack outside his home whilst chasing young yobs who had been
tormenting Joe and his wife, Isobel by banging on their door and
windows for weeks on end. Army veteran and former boxer Joe had
undergone heart operations and had a pacemaker fitted. . He was a
stalwart member of our bowling club, ever present and very active
in bowling circles, which was borne out at his funeral on Tues
16th October by the many many bowlers in attendance. We will
all miss Joe at Cambuslang Bowling Club.......
11th November, Remembrance Sunday, Joe's ashes were scattered at
the bowling club and a commemorative plaque placed alongside our
war memorial. Joe's family and a large turnout of members and
friends witnessed the ceremony. A tribute to Joe's memory was
delivered by our Secretary David Barnett.
