Angus was one of the first members to join the Order in the UK in the Hereditary Commandery of Lochore (the first such Commandery to exist in the Order), and was instrumental in setting up the first English Commandery of John of Gaunt. He went on to become one of the most popular and highly decorated members of the Order, and in his role of Grand Custodian of Insignia was a great friend to many members of the Order worldwide. He served for many decades in the Venerable Order of St John from an early age, and was also very honoured to be made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) by Her Majesty the Queen.
Angus will be sadly missed by his many friends, and in particular by his daughter Linda and his two grandchildren. If you wish to send a card or letter it should be sent to: Mrs Linda Dearnley, 34 Hollybank Ave, Upper Cumberworth, Huddersfield, HD8 8NY, telephone 01484 606795.
Angus's funeral took place on Wednesday 28th April at St. James Church, Huddersfield Road, Millbrook, Stalybridge, SK15 3JL, and a Guard of Honour both into and out of the Church was provided by a number of robed members of the Order and also by several uniformed St John Ambulance volunteers..
Only family flowers were requested at the funeral, but donations in lieu of flowers should be made payable to Macmillan Cancer Appeal and sent to Linda.
