John Lines Obituary

Bill Lines


It is with great sadness that I have to pass on the news of the passing of John Lines. One of the true gentlemen within the Border fancy, he was a well respected judge and trusted throughout the fancy, he will be greatly missed. Better known amongst friends as Bill, he will be remembered for his genuine friendship and good humour.

There was always a very warm welcome from Bill and Kate and a banquet fit for a king whenever fanciers visited, from near and far. When you were in his presence time seemed to stand still and six hours could pass in the blink of an eye, such was his knowledge and enthusiasm. Along with Jason Fischer and Colin Taylor I had the great pleasure of meeting all his family and close Royal Marines friends at his 90th birthday party, as you can see from the picture he looks truly happy. Our condolences go out to his loyal wife Kate and family.
