Gerry Maguire passes away

19/12/2017 16:22

With regret we have to announce that after a short struggle with cancer Gerry Maguire passed away peacefully this afternoon surrounded by members of his family.  Gerry's great determination to struggle on come what may was defeated in the end.  He always wanted to join the RAF but for medical reasons was unable to.  So when he joined the Branch he made up for his loss by throwing himself with his great will into all our events.  He even courageously gave a talk himself about a cousin who was killed flying in the Far East during WW2.  Gerry was a capable salesman and put his skills at the service of the RAFA Wings Appeal.  As a fitting tribute to Gerry's skill at placing RAFA Wings Appeal tins in our area we collected a record £900+ this year.

Funeral details will be published when known.

 

Here is Gerry as an enthusiastic supporter of RAFA Wings Appeal.
