The Probus Club of St Annes-on-the-Sea
Roger was born in 1926 and was thus 82 or 83. He joined Probus St. Annes in 1982 and had thus been a member for nearly thirty years.
He was brought up in Richmond, North Yorkshire and had worked for most of his life on railways where he eventually became goods depot manager, at one time at a large depot near Edinburgh. In retirement he enjoyed recreational walking and, as he had a free pass covering all British railways, he used it to get him to the start of walking trips.
He was Probus President in 1989 and was elected a life member of our club a few years ago. His wife Marjorie always accompanied him to Probus functions. They lived in Bowes Lyon Place, St. Annes, just off Heyhouses Lane.
Roger died in hospital on Tuesday 21st July 2009. His funeral was at the Crematorium in Regent Avenue on Thursday 30th July at 12:30.
