John Pakenham (Warley & Quinborne CC, Warks CA, MCCU)

I have been informed that John Pakenham passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday 9 February. He was taken ill and went to hospital shortly after Christmas/New Year. He will be missed by Warley & Quinborne and the wider chess community. He was current President of the MCCU. I met him several times at MCCU meetings and at MCCU congresses held at Rycroft Community Hub, Walsall and I know that the union will miss his sage counsel. Further information will appear on the MCCU website.
