Matthew James Melville Lannon,
known as James or as Spanner, was born in Raigmore
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.
