David Brook RIP - posted 10.6.18
I am sorry to tell you that David Brook died on Friday, 8th June aged 77 years. The cancer that prevented him from orienteering recently had spread and he spent the last couple of weeks in St Oswalds Hospice where he was extremely well cared for. Much loved husband of Sheila, loving dad of Martin, Katy and Stephen, he was also a proud grandad. The funeral is to be at the Newcastle Crematorium, West Road on Wednesday the 20th June at 10.30. Family flowers only, donations if desired to St Oswald's Hospice. Our thoughts go out to Sheila and his family.
