Tribute to be created in memory of former Irvine schoolteacher

FAMILY And friends of the much-loved former lecturer of the Royal Academy of Irwin began to pay tribute to the tenth anniversary of his death.

Alex Jack was a popular school teacher at the time, working in Irvine and Harnack, and also volunteering for his local West Kilbride Boys Brigade.

Now the relatives and friends of the beloved man are paying tribute to Alex to remember him in 10 years.

Well known for his love of fitness, the memorial was created on top of one of Alex’s favorite routes, on Couldron Hill in West Kilbride.

The spokesman went to a Facebook page set up in his memory – Alex’s memory 10 years later – to explain the tribute.

They said: “We invite everyone who loves and misses him to draw a stone in his memory and put it on top of Couldron Hill, West Kilbride.

“It was one of Alex’s favorite runs, but we’re not asking you to run, walking will be good. If you live too far away, then climb the hill where you are.

“If you climbed to the top of a hill or on a bike and left your stone, take a picture of you and your stone to add to this page.

“We look forward to many photos of your stones by April 17, 2023.

“We have permission from the landowner to leave the stones on top of the hill and we will do with them the radical punishment by the end of the year when they will rise.

“Please leave only the stone and no plastic honors.”

The first stones were laid on the hill this weekend, and Alex’s family and close friends climbed Mount Boiler to pay their respects.

A full map of the route up the hill can be found on the Facebook page.
