Yesterday (Tuesday 3rd March) we received the sad news of the death of our founder member David McKittrick. David had been diagnosed with cancer in the autumn and he had been undergoing treatment. However this had not been successful and the family had been told to prepare themselves.
I’m sure you will wish to join me in expressing the sympathy of the Society to Evelyn and the family circle.
David was a man of vision and, along with the late Jim McCullagh, saw the opportunity to establish a Classical Guitar Society in the Province. Furthermore he had the contacts, drive and organisational skills to realise this vision.
The Society Ensemble will be playing a fund raising concert at High Street Presbyterian Church in Holywood. I think it would be appropriate to dedicate our performance to David’s memory.
Below are some pictures of David taken during happier times.
