RIP Marcus Misson

Sad news about Marcus Misson, received from Pete Wells of Warboys Chess Club …

Really sorry and saddened to have to convey the terrible news that Marcus died of a heart attack on Wednesday night. As you may know he had been unwell and was in hospital in Sheffield having treatment for his condition when it happened, and they could not resuscitate him.

He leaves his partner Helen and two young sons, William and Matthew. The funeral will be at 12:00 on Friday 12th July in The Free Church, St Ives, followed by a private burial for the family. Everyone is welcome to attend the wake after the burial but the location for that is not finalised yet [more]

The family has asked for donations rather than flowers. Donations, if desired, made payable to SR.UK (Scleroderma & Raynaud’s) or The Mountain Bothies Association, may be sent to Easton and Cook Independent Funeral Service, 2b Harding Way, St Ives, Cambs PE27 3WR
