It is with great sadness that we report the death of Michael Hollingbery OBE at the age of 76 earlier this month. He died on a visit to his son in Winchester and was a long-time resident of Bishop Burton. Michael had been the Chairman of Comet until it was sold to the Kingfisher Group in 1984. A fuller report of his life may be found on the Hull Daily Mail web site. Our condolences go to his wife Karen and the rest of his family.
