Tribute to past FUW Area Officer

Mr Lyn Williams, retired FUW Area Officer has passed away. Lyn joined the FUW during 1977 and worked for FUW Insurance for 30 years, retiring during 2007. Lyn’s area was, in effect, the Gwendraeth Valley, Carmarthenshire, and the family home in Pontyberem was ideally suited for his work. 

Lyn was fully involved in his local community and he worked as a volunteer at both the National Eisteddfod and the Urdd Eisteddfod for many years. Lyn also had a passion for vintage tractors and his coffin was carried to the service at Caersalem Chapel, Pontyberem by his Massey Ferguson tractor.

Lyn was a highly respected JP for many years and the other great passion in his life were the Scarlets and he rarely missed a home fixture.

FUW Deputy President, Ian Rickman, was present at the funeral to represent the FUW as well as a number of retired staff and members. 

Ian added: “I knew Lyn very well and I am very much aware of the outstanding contribution he made to the FUW over many years. I extend my condolences and the condolences of everyone at the FUW to Lyn’s family at this difficult time.”


Y budd i’r ffarm

a’r tyddyn

fu wrth ei fodd.

O dan ei ofal tawel

rhoddodd sail diogel

i lawer

ar eu ffordd.

Ei fryd wedi’r gwaith

oedd gwasanaeth

y sôs a’r sosban

wrth lywio lluniaeth

i’r ford deuluol.

Pob tro wrth gwrdd

o gwmpas hon

bydd côf am Lyn

yn Erw Lon.
