Lion Jim Heywood 2nd October 2004 FAREWELL TO LION JIM HEYWOOD
Time marches on but the toll which it takes on friends and colleagues is something
which never becomes easier. Southport Lions have been mourning the death of fellow
Lion Jim Heywood, who died on Saturday 2nd October 2004. Lion Jim had not enjoyed
the best of health in recent years but was always to be found looking out for those
less fortunate than himself, and it is no surprise to realise that his last acts
of service to Lions were as recent as August 2004, when Jim took his place at the
Left Luggage and Plant Crèche at Southport Flower Show.
Personally, Jim was a modest man who had done amazing things, and who did not seem
to know the words "no" or "won't" and only recently had to admit to sometimes having
to come to terms with the word "can't." He will be greatly missed.
