Ian King - Funeral

March 5, 2019 9:50 PM

Representing the Forest of Dean Liberal Democrats Dr Anthony Lynch and myself attended the funeral of Ian King at the "Our Lady of Lourdes" Catholic Church in Newent on Friday February 8th. Ian was an enthusiastic member of the constituency party and was its chairman until a few months prior to his death. The requiem mass was attended by several hundred people with the church being full to bursting point.

Ian's eldest son led the tributes during which he made reference to his fathers long standing commitment to the Liberal Democrats and the role he had played in the local party. Although,obviously, a sad occasion it provided an apt reminder of his friendship and contribution to the cause which we all share.
