A memorial bench was dedicated to a Dunmow singer last week (November 14) who passed away suddenly in February this year.
Graham Davies, who was a member of the Dunmow Players for 12 years and had lived in Great Dunmow since 2003, died from a sudden aortic aneurysm at 74 – where a heart artery is thin and bursts.
He used to walk his dog past where the bench now is, outside St. Mary’s Parish Church in Church End.
A short service of dedication was conducted by Reverend Ruth Patten and the Chelmsford Male Voice Choir, another group he had been a part of, sung his favourite song – Deep Harmony.
The bench was organised by John Taylor, who had been the Musical Director of Chelmsford Male Voice Choir, until October this year.
