Whoopee, after 31 years and 3 months service, not the easiest of jobs, but a real sense of achievement and satisfaction. Thanks to being Secretary of RPOAS Lanarkshire, I still get to keep in touch with the majority of you good people. Went back to Strathclyde Police for another two years as the Forensic Gateway Manager and Mortuary Manager, another great experience and wonderful 'Civvys'. Happy daze.

Year 2000 personnel from Strathclyde Police, Group 2 at Cumbernauld. Sandy Geddes was the Shift Inspector and, given his previous activities in 'H' CID, he organised a weekend away to Northern Ireland where we were hosted by friends in the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC). They were good enough to give the shift a tour of the Ballistics Section.

Sad News - I regret to inform you of the death of retired Sergeant Adam MacPherson, aged 78 years, a resident of Carluke...
16/05/2020

Sad News - I regret to inform you of the death of retired Sergeant Adam MacPherson, aged 78 years, a resident of Carluke, who passed away peacefully on Tuesday, 5 May 2020, in Wishaw General Hospital.
Adam had only been ill for a short time but had heart, kidney problems and diabetes for a few years. He had been quite confused, the cause of this was related to his other health conditions. He was admitted to hospital on the 24 April but gradually weakened. Sadly, Adam’s loving wife Janette passed away on 18 April 2020.

Pre-Police Service
Adam was born in the same croft as his mother and many generations before that, at the Brenya, Fladdabister, South Mainland of Shetland, in 1942, during the 2nd World War. Times were hard for most, but he had a happy childhood, was close to his siblings, parents and grandparents, enjoyed school, helped on the croft and especially loved to be taken along to help with fishing in the summer months.
He was the 4th of 5 siblings - older brother Robert, and older sisters Nan and Barbara, and younger brother William. Sadly, all his siblings died before him. Robert in 1994, William in 2014, Nan in 2017, and Barbara just six months ago in Sep 2019.

Despite being Dux of the school like his elder sister's, Adam, like most young men on Shetland at the time, chose earning a wage over further education, so made the choice between croft or sea. He joined the Merchant Navy, aged 16, and after training at Leith on the SS Dolphin, flew to the Netherlands to join his first ship as an Able Seaman, then travelled "all over the world and many other places" for the next 7 years. The job wasn't always the safest. There are tales of him falling out the crow’s nest and breaking his wrist, and another of being accidentally left on deck as lookout during a storm, on a ship carrying explosives, jumping from one place to another on deck trying to find something to hold onto and a way back below deck while the waves tried their best to wash him overboard. Needless to say, he prevailed!

The Merchant Navy took him ultimately with a cargo of timber from West Coast USA to New Zealand where he met his wife to be, Janette, and when she returned to Scotland, he returned too and left the merchant navy. For a few months he took what work he could find, labouring and bricklaying until he could join the Police.

Police Service
In 1966, Adam joined Lanarkshire Constabulary, being stationed first at Blantyre, then moving to Newarthill by the time he married Janette in St Kentigern’s Church in Lanark in 1967.
Their daughter Fiona was born the following summer and the job and family moved to Abington, where the police office was just across the road from the house. The family settled and grew with the addition of numerous pets. Daughter Barbara was born in 1971.
Adam was patient, balanced and measured in his dealings with others. He listened well and was always accepting of other people's point of view.
He was a quiet and thoughtful man, polite, easy-going and quick to see the humour in situations, and readily made a lot of friends.
He was always very considerate of others and if you needed him, he'd be there. Always supportive of his colleagues, family and friends. He was the first port of call in any crisis and always said just the right thing, thanks to his common sense and experience.
Adam remained in Lanarkshire /Strathclyde Police, serving next in Airdrie, then Motherwell, later serving in Shotts, Newmains and Wishaw, where he was the Duty Officer. The family moved to Airdrie in 1976, then Carluke in 1980, as Adam moved around for work from ‘N’ to ‘Q’ Divisions.
Adam was deservedly promoted to Sergeant, circa 1982, during his time in Motherwell and remained a Sergeant ‘till his retirement in 1997, with over 30 years exemplary police service. He was a good ‘gaffer’ and friend to many. He mentored many young police officers and his wise counsel, support and advice were always well received. His report checking was of the highest standard and he taught many how to achieve this; principles that stayed with them for the duration of their service. He was affectionately known as ‘Rocky’ to many, a man who was solid, reliable, seldom fazed; he remained calm and in control
Off duty Adam enjoyed several pastimes - see the next paragraph.

Post Police Service
Adam was a keen target rifle shooter. He began shooting with the Police Rifle Association in the late 1980"s and by the mid 1990’s /early 2000’s, was regularly shooting and winning at Nationwide Police competitions from Bisley in England to Thurso in the North. The house became filled with medals, plaques, vases, and trophies. He continued to enjoy the sport for the rest of his life, not just the competition and challenge of shooting well, but the skill of knowing how to do so, and practiced regularly indoors at Larkhall; outdoors/long range at Ponclair in Lanark, and at West Athol Rifle Club at Blair Athol. Despite failing eyesight and increasing responsibility as a carer for Janette latterly, he continued to shoot when he could until last summer and would likely have been planning this summer’s shooting calendar now if he was still with us. He made many firm, long term friends through his involvement with the sport.

His lifelong love of animals led to his other enduring hobby. Along with Janette, he became a member of the ‘Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club’ since the 1990's - attending lots of dogs shows, and then participating in showing dogs too.

Although Janette’s mobility made it harder for her to continue to attend with him, Adam endured, with increasing success, and the house filled with rosettes, trophies, and prizes for this too - which culminated in showing his 3rd Dandie Dinmont (wee Darrick) at Crufts just a few years ago.
Again, Adam made a lot of friends and acquaintances through his hobby and enjoyed not only the company of the dogs, but the challenge of learning about breeds, grooming, care and ringcraft.

Adam was always a fan of family day trips in the car, which almost always ended up in Biggar, Moffat or Peebles, and usually took in any and all dead-end back roads he came across. He liked to explore and if there was somewhere he hadn't been, he liked to go and see what was there! The family found this amusingly predictable.

Holidays always meant going up north, and when the family was young that meant a caravan by a beach. Burghead and Arisaig were particularly good for walking miles along beaches with children and dogs happily in tow or teaching children how to row a boat. It also meant lots of new places with dead end minor roads to explore! Holidays in Shetland were based around the croft and catching up with family, but the day trips to outlying islands and the places he remembered from Sunday school picnics were enjoyed too.
His holidays with Janette and the dog after the children left home, were often inland in the mountains and forests around Lairg, Invernesshire, and the west coast.
Adam loved to learn. He liked to know how everything worked, and once he knew or had practiced something he'd often keep going until he mastered it. He also had a good memory, so there were few things he couldn't do, or didn't know how to do, or didn't know something about.
His hobbies of rifle shooting and showing dogs suited him well, as they involved a lot of learning, practicing and perfecting skills, and also collecting the tools and accessories required.

He also loved poetry and had a knack of being able to learn and recite his favourites from childhood and through the years.

He enjoyed history and geography and whenever he went somewhere or saw something of interest, he'd be there all day reading /absorbing all the information he could. He enjoyed anything concerning the history and folklore of Scotland and Shetland and the family history, the finer details of which was always hotly debated with siblings on trips home.

He also enjoyed making and mending things, whether it be fixing a car, or building a wall or taking something to bits, cleaning and oiling all the parts and putting it all back together again, good as new. He'd a habit of keeping anything that might come in useful at some point in the future to help mend or make something, and if you needed some obscure tool he usually had one you could borrow, or he could suggest a work around way to do what needed done!

Family
Adam was a widower and is survived by his daughters Fiona and Barbara. He was a proud grandfather to his namesake grandson Adam. A gentleman who touched many people’s lives and will be sadly missed. Sincere condolences to the family, especially due to the loss of both parents in such a short period.

Funeral Arrangements
Adam’s funeral service will take place at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 20 May 2020, at South Lanarkshire Crematorium, but due to the coronavirus crisis only close family may attend.

May he Rest in Peace.

Note: This obituary notice is accessible by Adam's family and friends.
Due to the current funeral restrictions this would hopefully bring them some comfort.

Kind Regards,
Henry
