Gerry Pettingill

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the passing of another Gt. Yarmouth member, Gerry Pettingill passed away after a long battle with illness, after suffering a stroke a few years ago and then to be virtually house bound for the last few months. Gerry had been a very strong rider and had won most of the Club’s Time Trial Trophies, several times, during his racing career. Gerry’s forte was also volunteering, for several years he would ride round various courses positioning all the signage required, which he had also made, on his bike with a specially adapted rack to carry all the signage, as well as any marshalling duties. Gerry was an avid fan of the social side of Club life, always at or near the bar after the day’s event, he will be sadly missed.
