A tribute from the Colchester Branch
A tribute to Stan Angier from members of the Colchester Branch of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, by Chris Jenkinson
Stan died suddenly at the end of April 2004 and many local people have contacted us to say how much he will be missed. Stan was a kind and generous man with a lovely sense of humour, who regularly dipped into his own pocket to avoid using Muscular Dystrophy Campaign funds.
He was for many years Chairman of the Colchester Branch of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and was previously Secretary, serving the charity for over 30 years.
He was always working at various collections and charity stalls, decorated floats for the Colchester Carnival, arranged a very successful dancing competition, financed and worked on tombola stalls and always attended Cards for Good Causes.
He was dedicated to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and worked tirelessly even after suffering a stroke, which left him with difficulty in walking.
Stan, you were one in a million and we will miss you. Flowers at his funeral were from family only and a collection for the charity raised £240.
Stan is pictured above in November 1999 when he received his Muscular Dystrophy Campaign '10 Year Award' from Martin and Rita Hunt, the Mayor and Mayoress of Colchester at the time. Although Stan had worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign for longer than that, the certificate scheme had just been launched at that time.
