Martin Chalmers - Keith Rose - 20-09-2021

From Castlehill CC:
Martin Chalmers B: 1/09/60 – D: 17/09/21 aged 61 R.I.P
It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you all that Martin Chalmers passed away on Friday. He was in a coma for over two weeks brought on by COVID and was on a ventilator which was switched off early Friday morning, but he never woke up.
Martin Chalmers was a long time member of Castlehill Chess Club off and on and had just come back after a short break, indeed he would be classed a stalwart of our chess club. He enjoyed his chess and for a long time played in the weekend chess tournaments about once a month playing all over Scotland. He was a vocal and colourful character, and you always knew when Martin was in the club! He was always willing to help everybody especially juniors with their chess!
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time and as soon as we have conformation on his funeral arrangements, we will let you know ASAP.
