Organist dies

 

Mr. Alexandra [sic] John Bibb F.R.C.O. Croesawdy, Newtown, died on Monday at the County Infirmary, Newtown, where he had been a patient for a short time.

Mr. A. J. Bibb, who was 87 years of age, was a native of Wolverhampton, and came to Newtown at the age of 26 years as a professional organist and music tutor.

He was appointed organist of St. David's Parish Church and served in that capacity for over 50 years. In that time he hardly ever failed, except for sickness, to carry out his duties to the Church and gave many recitals.

He was associated with the Hospital Board for many years, over 40 years in all.

His prowess as a bowler and member for many years of the Newtown Bowling Club brought his fame as a national figure in the sporting world,playing for Wales for 15 years.

Mr Bibb was predeceased by his wife nearly 20 years ago.

The funeral took place on Thursday at St. David's Parish Church and will be reported next week.

 

[N.B. Despite considerable scouring of subsequent copies of the County Times at the Newtown Library, it would appear that this funeral was never fully reported at all.]
