Died After Night Shift

"Jerry" Forde, 68-year-old night watchman at the Granvue Stadium, Stevenston, who resided at Blakely Road, Saltcoats, died suddenly at his home at 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning. He came in from work about 8 o'clock on Monday, had breakfast and went to bed as usual. Within an hour he was unconscious and he never regained consciousness.

“Jerry" was well-known and respected in the Saltcoats and Stevenston area and we tender sincere sympathy to his relatives and many friends on their sudden and sad bereavement.
