Tamworth recently lost two much loved and well respected members of both the community and Conservative Party when Ron Ellis and Cllr Sam Munn passed away.
Ron Ellis was originally from Smethwick, but then moved to Glascote before moving to Weymouth House in the centre of Tamworth. He met his wife-to-be Mabel in 1939; they were married in 1941 and they recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Ron was a valuable member of the community and was still serving as President of the Tamworth Royal British Legion. He passed away at his home on 27th September aged 91
Former Mayor of Tamworth and current Borough councillor for the Mercian ward, Cllr Sam Munn, lost his courageous battle against cancer on 7th October aged 81. Sam, who was born in Tamworth, was first elected onto the Borough Council in 1959 and had the honour of serving as Mayor of Tamworth in 1985. After a few years absence from the council he was re-elected in 2004.
Both Ron and Sam will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with their families at this sad time.
