George Malcolm Duggan,  1 January 1943 – 3 March 2022

It is with huge sadness that my beloved father Malcolm died on Thursday the 3rd of March.  I still can’t believe he’s no longer with us, but his legacy will live on and we will make sure we keep his his memory alive.

Funeral Service

The funeral service took part on Tuesday, March 22nd in the beautiful and tranquil settings of the Lancaster & Morecambe Crematorium. The service was performed by Christopher Whitehead, a lifelong friend of ours. It’s about 1.5 mins before the service starts. You will probably need to unmute the video sound.

Celebration of Malcolm’s life

Friends and relatives met together, after the funeral service, to remember and celebrate his full life. This took place at the  William Mitchell, in Westgate, Morecambe – the nearest pub to the Westgate Caravan Park and, later his bungalow, both of which played such large parts in his life.

The Book of Memories, that Tracy had previously created for Malcolm, formed the heart of a video to showcase his life. The video below has the picture sequence repeated three times, but with different music each time. It has a runtime of around 45 min. You will probably need to unmute the video sound.

Photographic Memories Book

In the latter part of 2021 Tracy produced an album of photographs covering Malcolm’s life from his early twenties. This was printed out in book form so that Malcolm could share memories with friends and relatives. It was especially helpful when he moved to the Mayfair since he could share these memories with his new acquaintances there.

This book formed the heart of the celebration video (above), but with the addition of some later photographs.
