Last Sunday night the PFS of NSW lost a very well respected member of our community, Jim MacKay. Jim was a cornerstone member of our club, a very fine treasurer and a wonderful friend.
I knew Jim for 30 years but had the pleasure of working closely with him for the past 8 years. It was an honour and a pleasure to be associated with him. He was a "racing Pigeon man" before he came to "Fancy Pigeons". He was deservedly honoured by the NSW Royal Agricultural Society this year for 50 years of service to the Royal Society and the pigeon community. He was a very knowledgeable pigeon fancier in many breeds. His birds were of the highest quality and beautifully presented.
At each PFS meeting he would surprise us with beautiful and tasty treats from his daughters bakery. They will be sadly missed.
His pride and joy in the last 18 months is that his grandson Joel has taken an interest in pigeons and was breeding some lovely Show Racers. I hope Joel will have the patience and time to continue in the hobby. To all Jim's family are thoughts are with you at this time and all our members send their condolences.
I will miss Jim's sense of humour, honesty and the support he has given me over the past years.
Rest in peace.
