A well-known golfer throughout Angus and Fife has died at the age of 88.
Ronald Fawkes was educated at Madras College in St Andrews.
His golfing prowess emerged as a teenager when, at the age of 17, he knocked out future British amateur champion and professional golfer Guy Wolstenholme in the third round of the British Boys’ Championship at Barassie in Ayrshire.
Mr Fawkes later became champion of Carnoustie Golf Club on four separate occasions – equalling a past record – and was Carnoustie Links champion in 1969 as well as playing for the Angus county team.
He enjoyed the sport in many parts of the world including Kenya and Malaysia, the latter during his National Service with the RAMC.
Post-retirement, he and his wife, Nora lived in Cyprus where he became the golf club captain at the newly developed Secret Valley course near Paphos.
Mr Fawkes spent his entire working life with the NHS, firstly at Dundee Royal Infirmary and latterly at Ninewells Hospital, where was senior chief scientific officer in the pathology department.
He was the joint author with Dr William Guthrie of a book titled A Coloured Atlas of Surgical Pathology.
Mr Fawkes died at the South Grange Care Centre in Monifieth.
He is survived by his wife, to whom he was married for 63 years, a son, two grandsons and four great-grandchildren.
His funeral service will take place in All Saints, St Andrews, on Wednesday June 12, at 10.30am.
