Joe McGilvray

It is with great sadness that we report that Joe McGilvray passed away on 25th May 2013. 

Joe, who was only 54, had served on the Committee since 1988 and was an avid supporter of the Society and its values.  He had been our Depot Introducer at Glasgow for many years and only recently had taken on the role at Yoker.  He was a stalwart within ASLEF, having served at national level on the Executive Committee from 2001 to 2004.

It was planned that Joe would be appointed as Chairman of the Society following the Annual General Meeting in June and he was looking forward to this new challenge.

Joe’s debating skills will be greatly missed, as will his dry sense of humour.  This is a tragic loss to his family and friends and is a great loss to the Society.
