We are greatly saddened to hear of the untimely death of Malcolm Anderson, who passed away on Monday.
For many years Malcolm (sat to the right of Ian Smith in the picture) has been a much liked and respected member of the Somerset swimming community, of which he has been a part as a committee member at Weston-super-Mare swimming club, and as an official at many galas and meets.
He was rightly proud of his daughters’ success in the pool, and very entertaining in his disregard for the nonsense that just occasionally creeps into the world of swimming. Particularly impressive was his unyielding faith in Swansea FC’s, as yet unrealised, prospects for success.
Malcolm, my man, I will miss you, as will everyone who knew you. Our thoughts are with his wife Diane, and daughters Hannah, Rachel and Bethan.
