Remembering Graham McMoneagle

I thought you might like to see this from the Bracknell Forest Voluntary Action (BFVA) Autumn 2009 Newsletter.

The Bracknell Forest voluntary and community sector is saddened by the recent death of our friend, Graham McMoneagle. He was a true gentleman in the finest sense of the word and for many years has taken an active role in local voluntary and community sector. We want to just highlight some of his areas of service. A committed Christian, he took seriously his commitment to serving others by taking an active role in the life of the Kerith Community Church.

His big smile, when serving on reception, made everyone coming in feel personally welcomed. One of Graham’s lasting achievements is the impact on our community of the disability forum. This grew from Graham’s enthusiasm for life and determination to make living better for those with any kind of need. He had great presence, was ‘on the ball’ in knowing what was going on and talked to others with purpose and fervour to achieve what was good.

Our thoughts are with Graham's wife, Sandra, and his family and friends. We hope that it will bring some comfort to know that he has left his mark on the life of Bracknell Forest and will be missed by many.
