George Livie
I am very sad to read of George's death at the beginning of June.

Everything Mac writes reminds me of a gentle, kindly man, who worked hard and enjoyed an enormously active, successful and varied life. I remember him from as long ago as the 1960s, when he was one of a number of young and enthusiastic members of the Glasgow police chess club. These included Steve Mannion (snr). My father was in the police and took me down to play in the club when I was in my early teens. I still have fond memories of the welcome and warm encouragement that they and other club members gave me. I have known and met him on and off since then. He was a great friend of Chess Scotland and served it well on many occasions, including even in the fairly recent past on the standards committee.

He will be greatly missed by many and my thoughts, too, go to Margaret and his wider family. RIP
