Stan Beaton
Sad news from Cathcart Chess Club in that our longest serving member, Stan Beaton, has passed away at the age of 87 (26 Dec 1934 - 20 Mar 2022).
He joined the club not long after it was formed in 1953 and was its first club champion in 1955. He was made an honorary member of the club some time ago and continued to come to the club until more recently when he began to suffer from dementia. He served on many Cathcart committees and was a stalwart of the Glasgow Chess Congress committee for a number of years. He is survived by his wife Eileen who he married in 1984. Our condolences to Eileen and all his family.
When I walked into Cathcart CC for the first time, Stan made me feel welcome and immediately offered to play a game. I kindly, quiet man who gave much to the club, and chess in general.
