Bereavement – John Chappell

03 October 2018
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Member John Chappell. We shall miss John greatly, his gentle humour and quick wit. Over the years at our TGIF nights John has entertained us bringing alive his passion for Geology, sharing stories of his travels around the islands. Over the years we had got used to him sailing his motor yacht Kaikoura up and down the harbour, checking the eastern channel and engaging in good humoured discussion with Bill McIndoe and others on the best route. There will be many stories that Members will remember and share, good memories of a lovely man. We are sure that you will all wish to join us in expressing our sadness to Helen and his family.
Kind regards
Ann E Crane
Honorary Secretary
