David Geoffrey Williams

 The Livingston branch is sad to announce the passing of Mr David Geoffrey Williams, better known as Geoff, on 18 February 2022 at the age of 79. He passed suddenly after a short illness. Geoff served in the Royal Engineers seeing service in quite a few countries and conflicts. Geoff started his involvement with the Royal British Legion in Wales as a family member. This connection would go on to last for 65 years, including his time with Legion Scotland at the Livingston branch.

He held the positions of standard bearer at Livingston branch and area level, attending many parades, and also served as Chairman. He was never shy to volunteer to help the branch. For the past four years, Geoff volunteered as a befriender for Unforgotten Forces, visiting veterans over the age of 60 right up to his passing.

Geoff will be greatly missed by all who knew him and we thank him for his many years of support, service and friendship to Livingston branch and Legion Scotland. He lived his life by the Legion Scotland motto, “Service not Self.”
