Mourners lined the streets of Brodick last Friday to pay their respects to Brodick man Harry Davidson, who passed away after a short illness. He was 87.

Harry, also known as Captain H and Mr Brodick, was actively involved with community organisations and events and was well liked and popular in the community.

Taking his last drive through the streets of Brodick, which he loved dearly, Harry’s cortege left Elma Park via Springbank, down past the Co-op, along Brodick seafront, which he also adored, and on to Brodick church, where his funeral service was held.

He was afterwards buried in a private service at Sannox cemetery.

Friends and those who knew him lined the streets along the route and, outside the large Co-op in Brodick, staff stood outside in a long line spanning the length of the shop, to pay their respects.

Harry’s involvement with community organisations, in particular the Arran Community Council, where he served as secretary for more than 12 years, and Brodick Improvements Committee has left a legacy of infrastructure improvements which includes the Brodick promenade, Fisherman’s walk, and many other village amenities which he helped to secure and develop.
