It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Club member Alan Wiles, G4GDC. Alan passed away at home overnight.
The members of Lincoln Short Wave Club send our condolences to Alan’s family and partner Helen.
Alan has been unwell for some time and recently had a short time in hospital. It looked as though he was gradually improving so it has come as a great shock that we receive this sad news.
Alan has been a great friend to the Club, not only with help and assistance but with the use of his facilities at his home and the hosting of barbeques for us. He has been very generous to the Club. If it had not been for Alan’s assistance, the Club would not have found a home at Aisthorpe, when it was in dire need.
Alan was elected to serve as a committee member but has been unable to attend recently because of his illness. This has not stopped several of the committee seeking Alan’s advice individually when visiting him. He was always good company.
A large number of Club members attended Alan’s funeral at Scampton church. Many others were unable to attend due to work commitments. After a service in the Church, the courtege travelled to Aisthorpe Church yard for Alan’s burial. Mourners then met family at a reception at the BSA Social Club.
