Kevin Feighan
#1
(Posting on behalf of Grangemouth Club)

Kevin Feighan, ex-Grangemouth player, died last week (possibly on 23rd August 2019, date not yet confirmed).
 
He was a very strong club player (once famously defeating a Scottish GM at the 1996 Scottish Open in Oban) and was well known as a national arbiter.  
 
He particularly relished the mathematical precision of end game positions.  On occasion, if a club colleague derided end games as "boring", Kevin would passionately demonstrate otherwise.
 
He was a first-rate coach who readily spent time passing on tips to beginners and inexperienced players at the club.
 
He was also for a while treasurer of the Central Chess League.
 
In short, he was a friendly, knowledgeable character who, until his retirement from over-the-board chess a few years ago, made a significant contribution to Scottish chess.
 
His funeral will be held at Falkirk Crematorium, Camelon at 1:45pm on Monday 2 September, 2019.
 
Bill Gray
Secretary Grangemouth CC
