Adrian Dale

Post by Gannet »

I have some news about Adrian Dale, passed to me by Jon, who lives in Bristol, is actively involved in the Seagull scene and helped Adrian a great deal when he visited the UK.
He informs me that Adrian is very poorly and it appears that he is now probably receiving palliative care.
Adrian came onto the Seagull scene a few years, with long distance 102 activity. He introduced a real breath of fresh air into this hobby of ours, by ambitious plans of using Seagulls. Not for him, just talking about them.

I am sorry to hear that Adrians health has worsened. I met him once on one of the Thames events, nice guy.
He was living life to the full, and was only hindered by his health, would have loved to done the long Marston run with him.
Thanks for letting us know Jeremy.

Sorry to hear this, I sold a ON to him some years ago, and delivered it to his son who lives near me.

I have some very sad news passed to me by Jon.
Adrian Dale passed away on Wednesday.
I am sure all our thoughts are with his family at this difficult and sad time.
I did not know him very well, but talking over lunch when he visited me, revealed him to be a lovely, generous man with a great range of interests, skills and experiences.

Sorry to hear this news, reading of Adrian’s adventures and plans for new ventures was inspirational, he showed what a Seagull is still capable of.

Condolences to his Wife,
Dave.
