The death has occurred of local man Andrew (Andy) Millar MBE.

Mr Millar died peacefully at the MacMillan Unit, Antrim Hospital on April 30.

Andy was well known and respected in our local community from his many years in scouting, particularly with 1st Cullybackey Scout Group, and through his work in the health service.

Born 17 August 1935, Andy started as a member of 1st Cullybackey Cub Pack in 1943.

Through the years he had progressed to Cub Scout Master and Assistant Scout Troop Leader in 1952; Group Scout Leader in 1971; Assistant District Commissioner in 1982 and had been Cullybackey Group Scout Leader from 1989 until his passing.

Andy was deservedly awarded the MBE for his life-long contribution to Scouting in 2013.

Through the years he has been an inspiration and role model to so many young people in our area and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

He leaves his wife Milly, brother Tommy, son Stuart and daughters Julie and Sara along with their spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
