It is with sadness that Sheffield Ship Model Society announces the death on Tuesday October 11th of a valued long term member of our Society, Alan Herring.
Alan joined our Society at the age of 22 years old, in 1963. That was when we used to sail at Wiremill Dam. At that time he used to sail i/c cord start speed boats. He was a member of other Clubs for several years and returned to Sheffield Ship Model Society around three years ago, with his wife Val and grandson James. They were all regular visitors to Millhouses, being well into yachts and Alan with his tug.
Alan battled his illness for a long time and, even at the very end of his life he always had a smile on his face as if he no cares in the world. He will be sadly missed by everyone at our Society. Our condolences go out to his wife Val and all of the family.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be made however, they will be posted on here when Val lets me know.

It is always sad to loose such a good friend and valued member of a club, any club.
May he always bring , through his memories,a happiness that those who knew him, deserve.
