Matthew James Melville
Lannon, known as James or as Spanner, was born in
Raigmore Hospital, Inverness on 5th April 1960. He
was the son of Matthew Joseph Lannon and Annie Isabella Fraser
Lannon (ms Melville) and brother to Allan and Ian.James passed away on 14
October 2012 at just 52 years of age.
When James arrived back from
Raigmore and was placed on the couch in 17 Millicent Avenue,
Golspie my first impression was that this new baby looked
remarkably like cousin Cecil (Eekie). For the first two or
three years I was very proud of him but could not really
take him anywhere very far. However, as he got older
and I obtained my driving licence there were more
opportunities to get out and about. He came out with me to
all sorts of interesting places and often on fairly routine
trips like a visit to the local shops.
