John Dent Taylor

19th May 2009 in Salmon, Shellfish

24 June 1960 – 10 May 2009

We are sad to have to record the death of John Taylor, a member of the NFFO Executive Committee and inshore fisherman from Newbiggin by the Sea.

John, who died after a long illness, bravely borne, was quietly spoken but a dogged defender of fellow fishermen’s interests. He sacrificed time and effort to serve on the NFFO’s Salmon Committee and Shellfish Committee and only missed Executive Committee meetings during the all- important salmon season.

He will be sadly missed.

John’s family have asked that donations be channelled to Cancer Research UK through:-
