We recently said farewell to Don Booth who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. He has been an involved and much-respected LYHA customer for 36 years. His friend and neighbour, Adele Rae, has written a few words:
Our Friend Don Booth
Don was a much loved and respected member of our community. He lived at St Ann’s for many years with his late wife, Doreen, who he sadly lost to Multiple Sclerosis.
Amongst other things Don was a former board member of Leeds & Yorkshire Housing Association and took a keen interest in the organisation. He was never afraid to challenge management on behalf of his fellow residents. He was also a great believer in the importance of community and was a member and enthusiastic supporter of St Ann’s Residents Association.
Latterly he attended the Golden Oldies lunch club at St Ann’s (pictured centre back) where he made a number of close friends who will miss his warm companionship greatly. We will remember his smile, his positivity and wry humour and feel privileged to have known him.
