We’re sad to announce that Ron Cox, President of The Guzzlers, former leader and long-time friend of the Group, passed away on Wednesday 26th August while in hospital.
Ron lived in Wales, where he was the Scout Association’s Water Activities Advisor for Wales. But before moving away from Leigh, Ron was very active as the Group’s Rover Scout Leader in the early 1960’s. When asked to become the President of the Guzzlers in 2010 he was absolutely delighted and visited the Group as much as he could or gave his advise to the Group in his capacity of Water Advisor. For all we’ve not seen much of him he remained a dear friend of the Group and Guzzlers.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ron’s wife Betty and his family at this very sad time.
