Obituary of Ronald Kinloch, councillor; born October 10, 1932; died July 23, 2007. Ronald Kinloch, who has died aged 74 while chairing a council meeting, was born and spent his whole life in Cardross, Dunbartonshire where his father was schoolmaster and session clerk and his mother, the source of great musical talent in the family.
He is remembered as a man of immense talent, kindness and commitment, never afraid to be passionate about what he believed in – above all, his own community for which he cared so deeply and served so notably as a member of Helensburgh District Council, then with Argyll & Bute Council, serving for 17 years as councillor for Cardross, then as convener of Helensburgh & Lomond Area Committee. He was also a trustee of the Cardross Trust, an unfailing supporter of the community council, a member of Cardross school board and chairman of the board of governors of Lomond School Helensburgh.
An elder since 1970, he was passionate, too, about his Christian faith and was an outspoken defender of traditional values and an unwavering supporter of his church and choir, in which he sang for 58 years.
