I’m sorry to let you know that on 6 November 2017, Dennis William Higgins FRPharmS, aged 84, of Surbiton passed away. Many of you will remember Dennis from the old RPSGB when he was an evergreen, vociferous and refreshing presence at the annual Branch Reps motions meeting, the AGM and the conference.
He registered with the Society in 1954 and was designated a Fellow of the Society in 1988.
Dennis served as the social secretary to the Thames Valley Pharmacists’ Association between 1966 and 1985, and later served as the association’s treasurer. He was always an active member of the local branch for many years, his LPF in its earliest days and was a member of both the South West London and Surrey and the Kingston and Richmond LPCs. In 1979, Dennis was elected to the membership of the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee.
On New Year’s Day 1996, on his 63rd Dennis was awarded an MBE for services to the community.
A celebration for the life of Dennis will be held at 12.00 pm, 24 November 2017 at the British Legion club, Hollyfield Road, Surbiton, following the cremation at 11 am at Kingston Cemetery. All are welcome to both. For further information, please contact Steve Higgins on 07785 324399 or SID Dajani on [email protected] or on 07771 915198.
Thank you.Sultan ‘SID’ Dajani
