Farewell to Brian Williams

The DMA was represented at the funeral of union and community stalwart Brian Williams today (Tuesday 20 June 2023).

Brian was a long-serving official at Horden where he became lodge chairman. He was active during the 1984-85 strike and served his community throughout his life. He was almost a much-loved family man known as passionate pigeon fancier in his free time.

Our secretary Alan Mardghum represented the DMA at Brian’s funeral at Durham Crematorium today.

Alan said: “Brian was great, solid union man and a pillar of his community. A kind and gentle person, he was held in great affection and was much respected, by all who knew him.

“The sympathies of the DMA goes to Brian’s family and friends.”

Brian Williams. 27 May 1941 – 5 June 2023
