MICHAEL JOHN (MICK) GETTY
It is my sad duty to report that MICK GETTY, a stalwart of the BDO and a personal friend and colleague, has passed away after a long bout of illness at the age of 65.
He had been an active and committed member of the BDO since the very beginning in the early 1970’s and was a former Secretary for Merseyside, President of Glamorgan, England Selector and a BDO Executive and former Director.
On top of all that he was one of the BDO’s best known characters, whose presence will be sorely missed within the BDO.
He joined the BDO’s head office in the early 1980’s and I was privileged to have him working alongside me for the last 30 years in the office, and as the valuable and respected head of the BDO Stage crew at all BDO tournaments.
He was well known, well liked and well respected by all who knew him and I send heartfelt condolences to his wife Sue and his family at this extremely sad time.
You will be sadly missed by us all Mick. God Bless and may you now Rest In Peace and be free of pain.
