Donald Baird – Forth & Clyde Centre
I have been asked by Neil Baird, to inform you of the passing of his father, Donald Baird, and also the arrangements for the Live Funeral Broadcast.
Sadly, Donald passed away on the 24th February, 2021 in the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, after a long period of ill health.
Donald, along with his wife Margaret, was a long standing and faithful member of the East of Scotland Centre. Donald was a Committee member, then PRO for many years, before eventually becoming Centre Chairman from 1996 - 98.
When the Centre came back from hibernation in 2016, Donald, although his health was deteriorating, volunteered to be Webmaster for the Centre, a position he held until the East Centre finally amalgamated with the West Centre in January 2020, and became The Forth & Clyde Centre.
Our thoughts are with Margaret, Neil and the family, at this sad and difficult time.
Can I also respectfully ask, on behalf of the family, that you Do Not attempt to contact Margaret in any way?. Margaret has also been in ill health lately and this would only cause her further distress and upset.
East Centre Immediate Past Chairman.
Margaret J Devine.
The service for Donald's funeral was on Thurs 1st April 2021
Sadly, due to Covid, this was restricted to family and close friends only.
