Crossed the Bar

It is with much sadness that I belatedly report that Steward Gavin Horne Crossed the Bar, at home on Saturday 4th January 2020 at home in Dunbeath. Gavin was not a member of our Association but he was a part of the RFA family.

This was taken from an e-obituary posted by Dunnets Funeral Director HERE

Suddenly in his home on Saturday 4th January 2020, Gavin, aged 56 years.  Beloved son of Irene and the late Will Horne, much loved brother of Ian and Derek, brother-in-law of Elaine and Charlie, dearly loved uncle of Amanda and Tanya and a dear friend to many. 

Funeral service within Dunbeath Church of Scotland on Saturday 11th January, service commencing at 12 noon, thereafter to Berriedale churchyard.  All friends respectfully invited.  Family flowers only please, donations if desired may be given at the service in aid of the Merchant Nay Seafarers Fund and Dunbeath Day Care Centre.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to and all his family.

If you have any remembrances of Ally please Gavin it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crossed the Bar”. I am also looking for photographs of Gavin for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
