“It is with great sadness that we at Mercia hear of the passing of Daniel Chalmers. Daniel was a valued member of Mercia and I had the pleasure of playing with him in the Inter-Regional Qualifiers last year. He was an outstanding player and a medal winner in the Transplant Games. We all at Mercia remember Daniel as the figurehead of D C Petanque and many of us purchased our boules from him. He will be sadly missed by us all but our memories of him will be good ones. On behalf of all Mercia petanque players we send our heartfelt condolences to his wife Kirsty and to Chas and Ghislaine, his parents. At some time later in the year when this difficult time is over Mercia will come together with his family in celebration of Daniel’s life in Petanque. John Proctor (Chair Mercia Petanque Association)”
