We are saddened to record that the death has occurred of John Dobson

John passed away on10th December 2017, peacefully at home in Isle Road, Coleraine.

John was a long time member of the club and for many years looked after the press coverage and photos for our local newspapers. He was a very popular club member and noted for his special sense of humour and fun (over the last few years of the website, he supplied many of the ‘Raise a smile’ items on the ‘Gallery Plus’ page - WebEd).

John was the dearly loved husband of Isobel, loving father of Simon, Emma, Matthew and Sarah, father-in-law of Nicola, Nigel and Rory, a much loved grandfather of Jack, Joseph, Benjamin, Lucy, Daniel and Emily, as well as a dear brother of Avril and the late Rosemary.

The Funeral Service was held in St Patricks Parish Church, Coleraine on Friday 15th and followed by the interment in Portstewart Cemetery.
