RIP Des Greenwell

Alan Smith sent me the following sad news;
Just a note to let you know that Des Greenwell passed away last week, aged well into his 90's.
The funeral will be at Durham Crematorium on Thursday 5th Nov at 2.0pm.
Des was well known in the Teesside area and was an ex pro. trumpet player and later played with the Bush Big Band and the Darlington Big Band and other local bands.
Although I didn't know Des Greenwell personally I knew he was held in high regard down Teesside way where he will be sadly missed.
Lance.
PS: Apologies but I have got a photo of Des.
