Walter Jarvie

Recommended Posts

Just heard the sad news that our oldest supporter, Walter Jarvie, has died in the Village Nursing home, Cumbernauld. At 89 he had been a supporter since the 1940's and was attending games, both home and away, up till almost the end of the season just finished. He was a very well known figure at grounds throughout the West region and beyond, accompanied by his black labrador, Meghan,  She was very well behaved, usually off the lead but almost never strayed on to the field of play except for the one occasion when she chased a rabbit across the pitch at Dunipace. Walter was a great character and will be much missed at Duncansfield. No word of funeral arrangements at present

Very sorry to hear that sad news. He always spoke to us in the dugout and never a bad word said. Condolences to his family.

A big apology due to everyone. A huge mix-up resulting in fake news of Walters demise. He is still with us; a request to a local church to handle his funeral whenever it may come about was interpreted in the wrong way and the rumour went round the town. Not only that apparently amother similar case has happened with someone else and a funeral notice went up for the wrong person, heads will roll!

I have to accept some blame for this fake news, jumped in too quick without checking when I heard it. Especially since I had visited him just a few days earlier and he was fine then.
