Brian Jackson and his wife and Anne have been members of our club for 30 years. Brian served on the committee for a number of years, holding the positions of Club Director, Vice President and Treasurer.
Brian was lovely to play with at the bridge table, whether he was your partner or a member of the other pair. He was always friendly, courteous and polite. Brian was also an excellent bridge player.
I will always remember returning from Europe with my husband Richard in 2006 and bumping into Brian and Anne at Singapore Airport. They were also returning to New Zealand from their travels. We played bridge, as all keen bridge players do, in the airport departure lounge while waiting for our flight back to New Zealand. It was not that easy to play bridge when the seats are in a row, but we managed it!
Brian was a much valued club member and shall be greatly missed.
Rest in peace Brian.
