  • District Governor Elect Ivan Conner and Lisburn Rotarian

    ivanconnerPresident Paul and the members of the Rotary Club of Lisburn are saddened by the death of our esteemed member Ivan Conner,

    Ivan joined the Club in 1995 having  previously been a member of the Portadown club.He was a valued member of the Lisburn Club becoming President in 2006/07 and in 2012 was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship.

    Ivan was very active in District acting as Rotaract Chairman, later as  Assistant Treasurer then Treasurer and in 20016/17 as Assistant Governor. At the District conference in 2017 Ivan was elected as District Governor elect although at the time he was very ill and unlikely to take up the post, this honour gave him great pleasure in his last days.

    Ivan was always hopeful that he would beat the cancer and was always positive when visited by his many friends in Rotary.He will be sadly missed by all his fellow lisburn rotarians

    We pass on our sympathy to Dawn and all the family.
