With great sadness, we pay tribute to Bill Taylor, FHBT trustee, who passed away on 19th June.
Bill joined the Board of Fife Historic Buildings Trust in 2004, following his retirement from Fife Council. He brought to the Trust immense experience and insight, following a 40-year career in planning and economic development, largely in Fife.
With wide-ranging interests in heritage, countryside, travel and international affairs, Bill was also well-connected – developing partnerships and friendships by supporting others. He had a lifelong focus on improving the lives and prospects of all who live in Fife, by enhancing and sharing all aspects of its historic and natural environment.
Bill will be sorely missed by his fellow trustees at Fife Historic Buildings Trust, and by the staff team. Over 17 years, he has made a huge contribution to our work, supporting the delivery of historic building restoration projects in Kirkcaldy, Kinghorn, Burntisland, Dunfermline, Dysart, Ladybank, Anstruther, Lochgelly, Cupar, Leven and Inverkeithing.
Those who met him will share our appreciation of him as a kind and committed trustee, incisive in his questioning, and generous with his knowledge and time.
We shall miss him greatly, and our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
