Tributes paid to pensioners’ rights campaigner
5:00pm Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
AN ardent campaigner for pensioners’ rights has died, aged 82.
Gordon Beare, from Beaconsfield Road, Clacton, was known for his involvement with the Tendring Pensioners’ Action group and would often speak out on health issues.
“He was very kind and loving and was a very good father,” said wife of 53 years, Marjorie.
“As he got older he campaigned on health matters and did what he could to look after pensioners as much as he could.”
Mr Beare died at home in his sleep on February 25. He leaves his wife, Marjorie, and sons Alex and Andrew.
