  Arthur McCurley
Posted by: Ianbrownlee - 07-02-2021, 08:04 PM - Forum: Obituaries - Replies (2)

From Iain Fraser, President of the Ayrshire Chess Association , regarding our Prestwick team mate Arthur

It is with a great sadness that I report the passing of our friend and club mate Arthur McCurley on Wednesday 2nd February.
Arthur enjoyed his chess. He was still playing for Prestwick last season, along with participating in the Ayrshire Championship.  He had a great love of the game and enjoyed sharing his knowledge with the junior players, showing them old games’ that Fisher played.  He bought Chess sets and boards and would donate them to local schools to encourage more young players, hoping that they would evolve a love for the game too.
Arthur was a great friend and team-mate.
He will be sadly missed by all.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this sad time.
