Bruce Webster, sadly missed.
It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of Bruce Webster, Convenor for Clan Hay in Canada.
Bruce, who’s mother was a Hay, took up the reins as Convenor in 2014. Since that time he has worked tirelessly for the Clan. In spite of his struggle with illness he was always cheerful and supportive.
He was a much loved and respected Clan member and will be sadly missed.

Lady Killearn at her 101st birthday in January 2011
Jacqueline, Lady Killearn, who has died aged 105, was a staunch supporter of the Clan Hay Society for more than 40 years.
Her friendship with Robert Hay, following Lord Killearn’s death in 1964, introduced her to Clan Hay, whose members were readily welcomed at both her homes.
Jacquie was a spirited character and will be sadly missed.
