Tom Rimmer RIP

On Friday 16 November BIFHSGO lost one of its most dedicated members, Tom Rimmer who passed away after a year-long decline and following surgery.  A native of Lancashire with a deep interest in his family history, Tom served as BIFHSGO Vice-President and Treasurer from 2000 to 2006. During that time of Society growth he took the initiative for the Society to become the only North American agent for vouchers for the 2001 census of England and Wales.
Tom was a willing volunteer in several areas including performing home child data abstraction, at the conference in the computer room and as conference treasurer for many years. He made several BIFHSGO presentations, most recent jointly with his granddaughter in September last year.
Sympathy to Tom's wife Nancy, sons Doug (Susan) and Malcolm (Donna), and grandchildren Anne and James.
