Mr Dennis Ogborn MBE
The death has occurred of Mr Dennis Ogborn MBE, stalwart of Holywood Methodist Church where he served in many significant roles over the years, and well-known local personality.
Dennis was formerly a Councillor for Holywood on North Down Borough Council, and also served as Deputy Mayor.
Dennis was a very active member of the community in Holywood Town, and a deeply caring neighbour and friend to many. He had great pride in his town and was appointed Secretary of Holywood Residents Association for many years. In August 2018 a memorial bench was unveiled in his honour on Church Road.
Current funeral arrangements are under the Covid-19 restrictions set by H.M. Government and will be family only at a brief graveside ceremony. The date set is 14th May leaving Gray’s Funeral Home in Holywood at 10.30am, passing through the town via Church Road, past the Methodist Church for burial at Redburn Cemetery at 11.00am.
Our deepest condolences to Brian, Ivan, David and their families.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 (KJV)
Rev Gary Millar
This seat is but a foretaste,
Of mansions there prepared,
A shadow of the blessings due
To faithful souls, impaired;
For sweet release and wholeness,
Will be their portion, blessed,
With clarity of mind and voice
Replacing days distressed!
Reserved, a place in glory,
For God’s great warriors, true;
Who walked, disciples of their day
And saw Christ’s victory through!
In loving memory of Dennis Ogborn, MBE
