Michael Frederick Hairsnape - Rainford & District 41 Club
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Mike Hairsnape on the 19th August 2015, aged 79 yrs.
Rainford & District 41 Club was founded in 1978 and Mike became the first Honorary Member in 1979. Mike was always a very active member of the Club and shortly following the change of Membership Rules whereby he became an Associate Member, he took up the office of Club Secretary. He was admirably suited for this role as his lifetime work experience (including two years National Service in the Loyal Regiment) was with the Prudential Assurance Company from where he retired as Broker Inspector.
The admin experience gained from his work meant that our club records were maintained to a very pristine and accurate level. For the year 2007/8 he was the Club Chairman. He was a very kind and generous man and will be sorely missed by all of us. Mike was very much a family man, but very sadly, his wife Pat died some twelve months prior to his death. He is survived by two sons, Jonathan and Simon, and daughter Elizabeth and our thoughts and condolences are with them.
