Association pays tribute to former Ayrshire Branch Chair John Lappin

SELECT was saddened to learn of the recent death of former Central Board member John Lappin, who passed away on 16 March. 

John was Chair of his local Ayrshire Branch between 2014 and 2018 and took a keen interest in electrical matters at both a local and national level. 

A former player with Marr Rugby Club and an enthusiastic golfer, he also competed in the SELECT President’s Cup, captaining the West of Scotland team to back-to-back victories in the annual competition in 2015 and 2016.

Current Ayrshire Branch Vice Chair Jim Cooper said: “John was an incredibly popular figure who was well known by everyone in the electrical trade around Ayrshire and beyond.

“We shared many good times together at SELECT events and on the fairways and he was always a knowledgeable and good-natured character to be around.”

John’s company, Lappin Electrics, was based in Troon and was a SELECT Member from 2007 to 2019.

Managing Director Alan Wilson added: “John is still fondly remembered and well thought of at SELECT and our condolences go out to his family and everyone who knew him.”
