It is with great sadness
that we learned Dennis Payne passed away on Tuesday 5th May. This
happened following admittance to hospital for a blood transfusion
in Yorkshire where he, unfortunately, contracted
Dennis, formerly of Bonner Street, was a black cab driver, married to Lil, and a parent to Joanne, Judy, and Donian. Joanne and Judy both swam with the club.
He was well respected, and loved, by those of us that remember him.
His friendly, mild manner, and calm, fair, methodical approach to situations, ensured he was an excellent
Chair for BGSSC. A role he fulfilled for most of the 1970's and 1980's, before retiring to Thornton-Le-Dale, Yorkshire.
Our condolences go to his family.
God bless you Dennis.
Rest in Peace.
Tony, Dave, BGSSC Teachers/Coaches, Committee, and members
