Sad News - Gerry Stokes

The end of an Era

It is of great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing away of our friend and colleague, Gerry Stokes.

Gerry was General Secretary of the Preston TT League for over 50 years, only retiring a couple of seasons ago..

Gerry was a kind and generous man, an inspiration for us all.

Not only was he the Secretary for PTTA, he was Secretary to The Canal Society, A Big Band Society, Bellringer’s Association and helped out at his Church as well.

He will be missed but remembered, especially by the older member’s of our Association.

Gerry's funeral will take place at St Anne’s Church, Church Rd / Headroomgate St Anne’s FY8 3BB at 1200 / NOON on Friday 8th July, followed by a service at the Crematorium. A reception follows at the school room.

Tony Rigby
