RIP Wilson Hendry

Posted by davidburbage on August 29, 2012

Cllr Wilson Hendry, who died early on Sunday morning, will be missed by his colleagues at the Royal Borough.

Cllr David Burbage, Council Leader said “Wilson was a true gentleman, a colleague and a friend who will be missed by his fellow councillors. Always true to himself and others, he had a strong sense of principle. When he got his teeth into an issue, he would always see it through.

I admired Wilson for not only having the political courage to cross the floor – but then retaining his seat under a different political banner. He served as an elected councillor for over 20 years, and the loss of that wisdom on both our licensing and planning committees will be noticed by all who served with him.

He was a fine and generous man – my condolences to Janet and the family at this difficult time.”
