Death of Former National President


Please pray for the repose of the soul of Tom Brown of Horwich, Lancashire, who died on Friday 20th January at the age of 90. He was a Thornleigh past pupil and was National President of the Salesian Past Pupils Federation for three

different periods.

The Requiem Mass was at St Mary's Church, Horwich, at 12 noon on Friday 27th January, followed by cremation at the West Chapel, Overdale Crematorium, at 1pm. Canon Harry Jones, the Parish Priest, presided at the Funeral with Fr

Brian Jerstice SDB and Fr Patrick Sherlock SDB concelebrating. A guard of honour was provided by the Knights of St Columba of which Tom was a longstanding member.

John Ward has prepared a Tribute based on the Order of Service for the Funeral. It includes a photograph taken some years ago in the grounds of Blaisdon Hall with members of the National Council of the time.

May he rest in peace.
