Aberdeen Council “Giant” Ron Clark passes away

The Aberdeen Press and Journal has the sad news:

A veteran Aberdeen councillor, described as a “giant” of the community by colleagues, has died.

Ron Clark, Liberal Democrat member for Dyce, Bucksburn and Danestone, died last night after being admitted to hospital earlier in the week.

Mr Clark, who was in his mid-70s, marked 30 years of public service last year.

His council colleagues paid tribute to a hard-working character who had dedicated himself to serving his local community.

Last night Liberal Democrat council leader John Stewart said: “Ron has been a great servant for the people of Dyce for many, many years. Last year was the 30th year he had represented them.

“He has done a power of work for Dyce and has been an absolute giant for the community. He had a great deal of experience in both the regional and then the city council and was a great worker and advert for the Liberal Democrats in that time.

“He will be very sorely missed by all.”
