A Sad Farewell to Dennis

May 31, 2019
We are all saddened to hear of the passing away of our dear friend and bandsman Dennis.

Dennis first became associated with the Marple Band in the late 60s as a tutor and conductor to the junior band, laying the foundation for the success and stability our band enjoys today. He was also instrumental in the good fortune the band appreciated under the baton of the late Maurice McClean, as bandmaster and accomplished cornet player.

Recently Dennis played a pivotal role in contributing to the band’s achievement in securing 1st place in the 3rd section N.W.A. Championship at Blackpool. Dennis was a trustee for the band and an active member on The Brass Bands of Marple committee.

A Diamond Geezer.
