A former shopkeeper from St Andrews has died at the age of 87.
George Geddes died in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, following a short illness.
He ran the family firm Geddes for Fine Foods, on Market Street, St Andrews, with brother James for around three decades.
Born in the town in 1927, Mr Geddes was educated at Madras College before joining the Merchant Navy at the end of the war.
When his service came to an end he took up his role in the delicatessen started by his father, James, and became a well-known face in the town.
He later became the area organiser for the Sue Ryder Foundation, setting up shops for the charity around Scotland.
His work with charitable organisations continued with the Bethany Christian Trust, for which he and his late wife Jean ran a branch in Stockbridge, Edinburgh, for five years.
Mr Geddes was a member of St Andrews Baptist Church, where his father-in-law was a minister.
He was also a member of the Liberal Democrats and served for a short time on St Andrews Community Council.
He leaves behind his three daughters, Irene, Alison and Eleanor, six grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
