Deepest Sympathies for a Local Giant
It is with the deepest sadness that we received the news of Councillor Ray Bowker's passing.
One of Trafford's longest serving Councillors, he served his community for 43 years
with distinction and grace.
Ray served on almost all the committees of Trafford Council as well as many school Governorships
and with Timperley Boys Brigade.
A lifelong liberal, a democrat and always independently minded, Ray served as
Trafford's Millenial Mayor and was immensely proud to be honored by Her Majesty the Queen
with an MBE for Service to the local community.
Ray was highly respected across the political spectrum.
He leaves behind a sublime example for anybody aspiring to serve in Local Government.
Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
