Richard Alexander Robert Burnett

We were very saddened at the sudden death of Richard Burnett. Richard is the son of Bob Burnett, the croquet champion whose company many of those who have been to our Gatherings in 2013 and 2017 will have enjoyed.

Richard was a keen family historian and proud of his heritage. He visited Crathes many times with me and was with Bob when he handed that Moffet mallet over to Vinny Burnett for display in the Castle some years ago. He will be sadly missed.
