Mr Beaumont Remembered
It was with great sadness that we heard that our Seigneur, Michael Beaumont OBE, died at home on Sunday morning of a suspected heart attack at the age of 88. Michael, a very successful aircraft engineer, became Seigneur almost forty-two years ago, inheriting the title from his Grandmother, Dame Sibyl Hathaway. He will be much missed for his generosity, gentle leadership and wonderful sense of humour. The role of Seigneur will be passed on to Michael’s oldest son, Christopher, who will become Sark’s 23rd Seigneur. Our sympathies go out to Michael’s family, his wife Diana and many friends. The funeral will be held this Wednesday 6th July at 1.30pm at St Peter’s Church here on Sark.
