Dear Erik, This is to let you know that Gordon Evans,Senior Steward with East African Airways for many years,died on April 9th..aged 90.,. His niece Chris rang this evening to ask if I could let his other friends from our airline days have the news,so I thought of you..Will you please mention Gordon on the East African website? I know the funeral will take place at Eastbourne Crematorium on Tuesday 28th,but don't have the full details .time etc...yet,...There are to be family flowers only,but Gordon hoped for donations to be made in his name to an East African Charity called Hands For Hope..again I have no accurate details yet,so we'd better leave that for now...and when I get more information about it I'll let you know... I'll miss Gordon,as I'm sure will his many friends and colleagues from the airline..He always kept his mischievous sense of fun even after becoming very frail..He loved nothing better than to chat about his days in Kenya and the life we all enjoyed there. Thankyou, Sheila Garland.
Dear Erik, As promised..I now have the name and address of the undertakers for Gordon Evans, so should anyone wish to make a donation in his name to the Hands For Hope, East African Charity..he chose to support..They should contact...
