Sad news arrived this week regarding the passing of LBT regular, Graham Wright. Graham was a prolific contributor to the LBT  Newsletter on Tuesday Group matters both as scribe and photographer.
He is mentioned in some 90 contributions, much to his credit! As is the way of the photographer, there are many photos by him, not so many of him.

The following eulogy was provided by Peter Hill:
Sadly Graham , a stalwart of the LBT maintenance crew ,passed away at his home on Wednesday afternoon.
A member of the LBT for many years Graham had a natural way with conversation around the workshop table touching on the various topics that old boys talk about .  He was never lost for words.
He helped where he could and although his back problem gave him pain he would step up to do what he could .  One can ask no more than that .  
He produced some of the best photo,s of workshop activities that  we hope will not be lost .   
Graham was born in Manchester but brought up in the channel  islands and had many and varied careers from driving heavy trucks , wedding photography , trader on Salamanca market,  a lighting technician for many well known bands and a long time connection with local Huon FM  radio.  A large teddy bear of a man with a good heart .  He will be missed by many .

In the absence of an available next of kin, a mutual friend (David Coldrick) is expected to arrange Graham's funeral, probably with a cremation.

Details of this will be distributed to the LBT and personal friends as soon as they become available. RIP Graham.
