RIP William (Bill) Whitehead

Bill Whitehead

It is with great sadness we have to announce; on Thursday 22 June 2017, after a bravely fought battle with illness for many months, William (Bill) Whitehead passed away peacefully with his family by his side. 

He has been a loyal friend and stalwart of the Huddersfield Youth Brass Ensemble Association for over 20 years, mainly on BBb bass, but has also served on our committee, helped with our youth band, regularly transported equipment and was always willing to help anyone with a problem.

His willingness to help other local bands meant he was well known to many band persons in the Huddersfield area and will be missed by everyone that knew him.
