I was so surprised to learn, with the news of Allans death, that hed lived in Carnoustie. I went to his funeral this morning - its always interesting to learn of the life of the one departed.

Id no idea that Allan, linchpin of Carnoustie Musical Society was the same Allan Gibson whod been at school with me. He directed the musicals and encouraged youth of the town to participate in MIDAS, a group set up exclusively for youngsters. A lover of music, his service started with Finlandia and ended with Highland Cathedral. The church was filled to overflowing showing the esteem with which he was held in the town.

He was a qualified civil engineer, and had worked in various towns and cities around Scotland, retiring in 1993. A fine family man, he was also a faithful member of the church and had been involved in big church projects like their new lighting, the kitchen refurbishment and designing their web-site.

This good and upright citizen will be sorely missed in the community as well as by his family

Allan was one of the Scottish country dancers in the mixed team that entered the Dundee Festival when we were in 6th year. The four girls in the photograph below are still alive, but sadly, of the boys, only George Chalmers survives.
