Tributes have been paid to former Dulnain Bridge Highland councillor Angus Gordon who died peacefully on Saturday.
Mr Gordon was praised for his loyalty and service in representing his local community.
He was elected as an Independent councillor for Highland Council in 1995 for the Dulnain Bridge Ward; and in 1999 and 2003 for the Strathspey South Ward.
During his terms of service he was area chairman of Badenoch and Strathspey, area chairman of resources, area chairman of the licensing board, and area chairman of housing.
Current convener, Councillor Bill Lobban said: “Angus was very well liked by his community whom he supported steadfastly over many years. He will be sorely missed. I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to his family.”
Councillor Margaret Davidson, Highland Council Leader added: “Angus was a true gentleman who was always there when needed and served his community of South Strathspey with extreme loyalty. He was especially supportive to the people of Badenoch and Strathspey first and foremost.”
Gavin Musgrove, of the Strathy, said: “Angus was very much an old style councillor – he stood for his community not any particular political party. He was a decent and honourable man who always had a friendly word and brought a wealth of knowledge about Strathspey to decision making in the ward.”
Mr Gordon, of Achnahannet, was well known in farming circles and a staunch supporter of the Grantown Show.
He passed away in Ian Charles Hospital in Grantown.
He was predeceased by his wife Norah. He is survived by their children Lorraine, Susan and Neil.
Mr Gordon’s funeral service will be held at Dulnain Parish Church next Tuesday (March 13) at 12 noon and thereafter to Grantown cemetery.
