Les Silkowski

It is with great sadness we pass on this message from Issy Silkowski:

Suddenly, but peacefully, on Saturday, 11th June 2022, whilst walking in the hills, Les Silkowski, devoted husband of Issy, loving dad to Kenneth and Gordon, granda to Mariska and Connor, father-in-law to Heather. Cherished brother and uncle and respected friend to many. A funeral service will take place at Inverallan Parish Church, Grantown-on-Spey on Wednesday, 22nd June 2022 at 11am; and interment thereafter at Delliefure Natural Burial Ground (please try and car share where possible). A Celebration of Life will also be held at Appin Village Hall on Monday, 27th June, at 11am. All friends are respectfully invited to attend, and bright colours are welcome. Family flowers only please. Donations, if desired, may be given to benefit Search & Rescue Dog Association Scotland. Enquiries to John Ross Funeral Services Ltd. 01479 872222 or info@johnrossfuneralservices.com

Les completed 13 crossings including TGOC22, all but one of them with Issy. As one of our vetters many Challengers will have benefitted from his knowledge of the Highlands. He will be much missed and our thought are with Izzy and his family
