Norman H.MacDonald - Society President

October 19, 2017

A sad announcement from the Honorary Secretary.

"It is with great sadness that I give notice of the passing, on Friday 13th October, 2017, of the Society's President, Norman H. MacDonald, aged 84, in the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, after a short illness, following some years of failing health.
In 2014, Norman was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and from the beginning of 2017, he had a series of falls, culminating in his entry to hospital on September 19th, suffering from pneumonia. Despite initial improvement, he was unable to swallow nourishment due to Parkinson's condition and in the remaining days, he could not communicate.
The funeral will be a private family occasion, at his own request.

Morag Y.MacDonald
Honorary Secretary"
