Rotarian David Gingell, sadly passed, away after a short illness, on the 22nd May aged 67 years.
David had been a member of the Lutterworth Wycliffe Rotary Club for many years and was a highly active member. He was President of the Club during 2004/05 and subsequently took on the roles of Chair of the International Committee, Club Treasurer and Club representative on the “Santa Fun Run” organising committee. In this latter capacity, he spent 2018 and 2019 successfully seeking sponsorship money from the local business community. A key element in ensuring the financial success of the event.
He brought a freshness and an enthusiastic approach to his Rotary activities and constantly demonstrated his desire to help others whenever possible. He was an amiable and likeable colleague.
A Civil Engineer by profession, he entered the Civil Service being involved in the development of the national major roads network. He retired from the position of Regional Director of the Highways Agency in 2014.
Outside of Rotary, David led an active and sociable life with many interests. He was an enthusiastic golfer being a member of the Lutterworth Golf Club, a keen tennis player and treasurer of the Lutterworth T.C., part time snooker player, and light-footed ballroom dancer. He and his wife Jean had a shared love of theatre and a real passion for cruising the oceans seeking new adventures.
In conclusion, David epitomised the essence of what it is to be a good Rotarian and more importantly a loving husband a very good friend.
He leaves a wife Jean, two children Fiona and Simon from a former marriage and two stepchildren Clare and Ian.

We welcome men and women members who share the same common goal: to enjoy friendship and, at the same time, to do something worthwhile in the community. The priorities being community service (both nationally & internationally), the support of local charities and the development of our young people.
