Sudden death of Roddy MacKenzie (1955 - 2018) - Dundee Local RSPB Group Secretary

Roddy's sudden death, while he was on his way to the shops during the bad spell of weather, came as a shock to everyone in the Dundee group. He had just recently retired from his job at Abertay University and was enjoying getting out bird watching on a more frequent basis. Roddy joined the local group in the 1990's and had been Membership Secretary since 2001.To the group he was a great help taking the minutes at committee meetings & AGM's, collating membership forms and e-mailing members regarding our next meetings or of RSPB directives. He was a fairly quiet, thoughtful and caring person who was always willing to help out. This included giving lifts to those unable to drive and manning stalls at Local Group events such as the Dundee Flower Show. A real tragedy. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him
