.Sadly this evening one
of our members Jimmy Hoad died.
This is one of the last
photographs I took of Jimmy at his son's Stuart's
last June. Jimmy was so proud of his son sponsoring a
tournament and he was delighted to be the 'honorary
coach' of both the sponsored teams - all kitted out in
teamshirts. The photo has Jimmy, his son Stuart,
his grandson Ewan and six of Jimmy's close pals
from Cambuslang BC.
The past few years due to ill health Jimmy wasn't able
to play bowls but he still supported the club and
enjoyed a game of dominoes every Monday evening. His
wife Audrey, another keen bowler, died exactly 10 years
ago and hers was a loss Jimmy never really got over.
Our sincere condolences go to his son Stuart, daughter
Glenda and all the family. We will all miss 'auld Jimmy'
at Cambuslang BC. ....... rest in peace pal.
