Death of Jack Emerson - 1962

Loughborough Echo - 16th February 1962

Death of Quorn Resident - Mr J G Emerson

The death occurred in the City General Hospital last Friday of Mr John George Emerson, of Barrow-road, Quorn, after a short illness. More popularly known as "Jack", Mr Emerson had for numerous years and up to his death been an active parish councillor and also a member of the British Legion. His work and interest in the village will long be remembered.

A sergeant-major in the first world war, Mr Emerson, who until recent years had been secretary of the Quorn British Legion, was regularly called upon to be parade marshal on various Legion parades, as well as for the carnival parades.

A widower who lost his wife a few years ago, Mr Emerson has a son, Ralph, who was married last year. He was aged 77 and the village mourns his loss. He was a true servant to the public of the village. His memory will remain long with those who knew him.
