  1. Gordon Stinson served 60 years as an ordained priest, initially in Hull then Georgetown Guyana and Port of Spain Trinidad, followed by Ravendale and Cleethorpes in north Lincolnshire, Dovercourt and Gosfield in Essex before 'retirement' in Cavendish.
    He had five children, two daughters and three sons, although sadly one son died in 1994, and he felt privileged to have seen the arrival of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

  2. Hello Mark, Thank you for adding a comment to this brief "RIP" article. If you could provide me with maybe a little more information and a more recent photograph of Gordon Stinson, I would be very keen to include a proper obituary on this blog. Please send information to me at webmaster@bostonian.org.uk . Thank you. Simon
