Death of 2624648 William A Gibbs

23 July 2018


Sadly, I must report the death of 2624648 William A Gibbs, who passed away on 19th July.

As a Branch Vice-President William (Bill) Gibbs was a steadfast supporter of the March Branch. He was a member of the Spalding Branch until it's closure and was equally active with both Branches.

He was a true Grenadier and immensely proud of that fact, and he promoted both the Regiment and the Association to the fullest. He will be sadly missed, however he is now re-united with his beloved Senta. RIP


Bill's  funeral will take place at West Suffolk Crematorium Risby Bury St Edmunds IP28 6RR on Monday 3rd September at 12 Noon

There will be a collection box for anyone wishing to make donations.

Those attending the funeral reception are asked to contact Bill's nephew David Goodman, by e-mail, at at least two weeks prior to the funeral in order to facilitate catering arrangements.

The funeral reception will be held at Bury St Edmunds Golf Club Tut Hill Bury St Edmunds IP28 6LG.

Bill's Nephews David and Graham hope that as many Grenadiers as possible will be able to attend this final farewell.
