It is with sadness that I record the passing of Ray Hurll, husband to Maureen on the morning of Monday the 24th of August 2015 after a long illness patiently endured. Maureen and Ray had married in 1952 and together had enjoyed the company of many Irish Setters under the Carramore affix. Ray had also been Treasurer of the Irish Setter Rescue Group Charitable Trust for some time, supporting Maureen in her dedication to helping Irish Setters in distress. Ray and Maureen had always valued their dogs as part of their family and on one occasion when a determined overseas buyer had asked Ray to name his price for a particularly loved dog he had replied with remarkable good humour and wit that “Maureen would rather sell me, before she sold the dog”. He will be missed. Funeral details follow:
Wednesday September 9th at 12. 45 at the West Suffolk Crematorium. Nr Risby, Bury St Edmunds. IP28 6RR.
