Death of Dan Verrier YoE 1954

I'm very sorry to have to record the death of a very old friend of mine, Dan Verrier (DOE 1954), on Sunday 12 July.

4We started at Reginald Road school together in 1948, attended the same Youth Clubs and were in the same scout patrol (along with the Turnhill brothers). We were part of an unusually large group (for Reginald Road!) of 9 to pass for the Southern Grammar Boys.

My wife and I attended Dan and Linda's Golden Wedding celebration last Autumn when he told us he had a kidney problem that was likely to require dialysis, but there was a medical complication and he never made it.

I've accepted an invitation to attend his funeral at Portchester on 23 July which is of necessity restricted in numbers.
