Pembrokeshire Snooker League chairman Ian Ashworth sadly announced on social media of the passing away of stalwart Al Gordon.
Chairman Ashworth pays a fitting tribute:  “It is with profound regret that I have to report the passing of our league president Alan Gordon.
“Alan passed away in Torestin Nursing Home today (Sunday) after a period of inclement health. He was 89 years old.
“Alan served with distinction on the committee of the Snooker League for 38 years. He was treasurer of the league for many years and was president for the last five years. He also gained a lot of success on the snooker table, winning many league and cup honours.
“Alan was well known for his constructive and informed knowledge at committee meetings, and if you ever wanted a bit advice of contentious issues, he was your man.
“Alan was also well known in former years in the entertainment scene in the county, playing at all the local nightspots fronting his band in the Balfour Club.
“Alan was a printer all his working life, setting up and running D T Pearce printers in Milford Haven with his partner Brian Davies.
“He was married to his wife Wenda for 69 years, and also leaves his daughter Allison, son-in-law Peter, and grandchildren Toby and Cloe.”
