Clyde Region was sorry to learn of the passing of two good friends recently.
Colin Marshall was a 'weel kent face' in Scouting in the North East of Glasgow. Colin was District Chairman of North Eastern District for many years where he supported the District Commissioner and his team in running the affairs of the District. In addition Colin was involved in the 22nd Glasgow then 10th Glasgow Scout Groups where his warm hearted nature helped many young people to enjoy Scouting. Colin was perhaps most at home when in the kitchen, either at camp or at an event ensuring that everyone was well fed and watered. Colin was held fondly in the hearts of everyone that he came into contact within Scouting and always went that extra bit to help people out.
Ross McManus was a stalwart of Glasgow Gang Show and was one of the last remaining members of Gang Show's 39 Club. Ross was on cast and the moved back stage where he worked to help put the show on. Ross was a great supporter of Gang Show over many years and missed his first show in 2009 when his health was deteriorating.
Scouting was well represented at both of their funerals and we give thanks for everything that they did, to help other people.Author: Gary Bainbridge
