Ron Moreton – WEA Bradford Treasurer

WEA colleagues in the Yorkshire and Humber region and beyond are paying tribute this week to Ron Moreton who died peacefully on February 25, 2014 at the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford aged 82 years.

Ron always introduced himself at meetings as the temporary treasurer of the WEA’s Bradford Branch. He’d had the voluntary role for over 40 years and his summary says a lot about him. He had a wry sense of humour and a strong sense of duty. He played a pivotal role in supporting WEA courses in Bradford and was active in regional governance, being a key member of the Regional Finance Committee for many years.

Ron was a straightforward Yorkshire man who gave a lot of time to his voluntary work. He worked tirelessly for the WEA and inspired a great deal of respect and affection. We were always pleased to see him and to hear from him.

We send our thoughts and sympathy to Ron’s wife, Audrey, and his family. We will be paying our respects at his funeral service at the Parish Church of St. James, Tong Village on Friday March 7, at 12.00 noon.
