Written by author on July 31, 2018
It’s with great sadness that we heard the news today of former Holyrood Presiding Officer and Galloway MSP, Sir Alex Fergusson, who passed away aged 69. Sir Alex always had time for Alive and helped us with messages of support over the years. He was always ready for interviews too!
Our hearts go out to his family at this difficult time. The waves of warm tributes which have been shared this afternoon are evidence of the impact and positive influence he had over so many in our region, transcending political boundaries. It’s sure to be of some comfort to those close to him, as they mourn the loss of their loved one.
Sir Alex will leave a large void in the South of Scotland – a true gentleman and inspiration to all, who will be remembered with great fondness by everyone who knew him.
