Update: Alastair Munro RIP

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Alastair Munro. He was a prominent New Zealand Piper in the 1960s & 70s, Chair of the CNP Music Committee for a number of years and generous sponsor of CNP activities. He was prominent in establishing and building the Bill Boyle Foundation. He will be missed. Personally I will miss his enthusiasm and generosity. I’m sure everyone who knew him passes on their condolences to his family and friends.

Updated Info. There is no news yet as to when and where Alastair’s funeral is. Messages of condolence can be sent to 4/20 Hewitts Road, Merivale, Christchurch.

Feel free to post comments and I will pass them on to Alastair’s family.

PS. Susan Miller, the daughter of Donald and Winnie MacLeod has posted the following comment (Alastair was taught by Donald MacLeod).
Alastair was like a son to Dad and Mum, the late Donald and Winnie MacLeod, and like a brother to Fiona and me. We will miss him sorely and he will always be in our thoughts. Our deepest sympathy to Alastair’s family.

    We are grieving in Waipu after hearing the news of Alastair’s passing. In my years as Chief Piping Steward and Secretary of the Waipu Caledonian Society I had the pleasure of communicating with him over the years and he was a fantastic supporter of our Annual Celebrations. He was always a pleasure to have as a Judge in Waipu and he will be sorely missed. The Wm Boyle Competition will never be quite the same.

    May He Rest In Peace.

    I was fortunate enough to receive some tuition from Alastair when briefly residing in ChCh as a teenager. I recall the kindness he demonstrated to me and the inspiration which his teaching encouraged and nurtured. A great loss to all who had the privilege to meet him. Condolences to Alastair’s family.
