It is with great regret that the Committee has heard of the passing away of George Smith.
George was one of the original members of our U3A, and was a member of the Steering Committee when the association was founded in 2008. George was our Public Relations Officer as, in his own words, he knew many people and had many contacts.
George was an enthusiastic U3A member but found the time to dedicate his life to raising funds for the underprivileged mainly by working with the Teulada-Moraira Lions Club, of which he was a Charter and President.
George also co-ordinated a Neighbourhood Watch scheme for the area where he and his wife Mary lived, again his thoughts were for the safety and wellbeing of others.
Knowing he was ill, he and Mary returned to the UK earlier this year and at least Mary is now surrounded by her family.
George will be greatly missed by many people here in the Moraira area, and also by the many people he helped over a wide area.
He is at peace now and free of pain, so our thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the family.
