.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 sponsored tournament 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.   


This video was first shown on 7th June 2008 at the Jimmy Hoad memorial tournament
I should add that Jimmy was affectionately known as 'Father Jack' from the TV series Father Ted
.

Jimmy Hoad born 23 June 1941 died 21 March 2008
Funeral arrangements: Friday 28th March 13:15 at Co-op Maxwell Drive, The Village, East Kilbride.
