It is with regret that we have to inform you of the death of Francis Collisson on 26th October 2004. His funeral was held on Friday, 5th November.

Francis was a much respected member of the BCA playing in the majority of over-the-board and some postal tournaments.

He also travelled to the Haaksbergen tournament and he was greatly respected by the people in the Netherlands and he will be very much missed by them all.

Francis was the perfect gentleman and always welcomed you with a smile and only had good things to say about anyone he knew.

He enjoyed his games of chess very much and also the social side of the tournament.

He will be truly missed by all who knew him.
The following members of the BCA attended his funeral: Richard Harrington, Mike Murphy, Sally Kenealy, Clive and Phyllis Hodgkins.
