The Banchory Men’s Shed was saddened to say a final goodbye to Davie Thomson last Thursday at Baldarroch Crematorium; we were also very honoured to have been included in the beneficiaries of the retiring collection, along with Ward 114 at ARI. A big thank you to David and Irene, their whole family, and mourners.
David passed away at the age of 69 on September 11th, after a long battle with oesophageal cancer.
He was a founder member of the Banchory Men’s Shed. He gave his time and energy unstintingly to the Shed and to the wider community. Dave was one of life’s do-ers, always the first to volunteer and an asset to any club or organisation. His attitude and example will serve as a lesson to all of us, to get involved and make things happen. His energy, resolve and compassion were outstanding.
