We are greatly saddened by the passing of former Milton Keynes Mayor and Member of Parliament Brian White, who died of cancer on Tuesday, July 5th 2016 in Milton Keynes University Hospital.
Accolades and fond memories of Brian have been pouring into local media from all his myriad friends in and around Milton Keynes. We can only add to that our own memories of how supportive Brian has always been of the Milton Keynes Cancer Patient Partnership, including delivering an inspiring speech at our Sharing the Caring for Cancer in Milton Keynes event back in July 2013.
That was one of the hottest days on record in Milton Keynes with the temperature averaging around 32 – 33 C all day. However Brian cheerfully sweated through the entire event in his formal Mayor’s clothes, spending more that two hours talking to the exhibitors and health professionals at the event in some detail.
A caring man who was loved and respected by all who knew him, including his fellow politicians from all parties.
May he rest in peace, and our sincerest condolences to his wife Leena and their family.
