Message from John Fahy Warley Quinborne
Sadly John Pakenham passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. He was taken ill again shortly after Christmas/New Year and bravely faced up to the situation, never once feeling sorry for himself and always thinking of those around him.
He will be sadly missed at Warley & Quinborne and in the wider chess community having served to provide and promote chess for many a decade.
Our thoughts and prayers are with John and his lovely family.
Details of his funeral arrangements will follow in due course.
