Obituary – John Holliday

It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of fellow club member, John Holliday.  John who was known affectionately as “The Flying Marra” to many, died on Sunday 11th of November after a brave fight against cancer.  John, a proud member of Border City Wheelers for nearly 50 years, will be sadly missed by his fellow clubmates especially the Vets group, with whom he rode out regularly until fairly recently.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with his wife Judith, son Jonathan and the rest of his family at this sad time.

John’s funeral will be held at Carlisle Crematorium at 10.20am on Tuesday 20th of November and Judith has suggested that John would be really pleased if mourners were to wear club jerseys on the day.
