It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Past District Governor, George King Thompson, MBE (Larne Club). A perfect gentleman, George was greatly loved and respected by members throughout our District and beyond. George served as District Governor in 1975-1976. We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Eilish and his family at this very sad time. Please see below the death notice and funeral arrangements.
Yours in Lionism,
