Daniel Guerin - RIP 
 
It is with great sadness, that we advise you that Daniel Guerin, who had been a member of the club since 2010, has lost his fight with Cancer. 
 
Daniel was only a young man when he was taken from us, but at the age of just 25, he had experienced the best and worst of times. 
 
After joining the club in 2010, he played much of his golf with Brian and John Jappy for whom he worked as an apprentice, but after a while he joined the TATS. Over the past few years, although only being in his early twenties, he was able to integrate into the 'Seniors' way of playing golf. He always look forward to the banter and joking, often from those two or three times his own age. 
 
One of Daniel's proudest moments at Bedfordshire Golf Club was when he won the Lord Lieutenant's Trophy in 2015. He was subsequently 'knighted' by the Lord Lieutenant herself Helen Nellis (see photo below and with one the other winners that day) 
Having been diagnosed with Cancer, he set himself the challenge of raising as much money as possible for the Brain Tumour Charity, by setting up his own charity (DJG Cancer) and organising fund raising events. In recent years Daniel could always be seen driving around the course in his buggy, with his bright pink golfing cap, pink shoes and pink tee shirt, proudly flying the flag for Cancer Research. At the time of his death he had raised over £22,000 - an amazing achievement. 
 
The TATS and many others in the club, have lost a very dear friend, and it is very sad to lose a golfing colleague at such a young age. 
 
Our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time. 
 
His funeral will be on Friday 23rd of June at 10.45 at the Crematorium, Norse Road, Bedford and following this, the wake will be at Bedfordshire Golf Club.

Daniel was an extraordinary young man: courageous, talented, fun-loving and resilient in the face of his huge challenges. How wonderful that he used his precious time to raise funds to help others. He did indeed deserve his "knighthood" in the Lord-Lieutenant trophy, not just for his superb golf, but for the amazing example he set for us all in how to be cheerful and optimistic in the face of adversity. He will be sadly missed. Helen and Joe Nellis

I am really sorry to hear that Dan has passed away at such a tender age... Whenever I saw him last year he was so full of beans.. It is truly tragic to die so young.. His name on the Lord Lieutenants Trophy will always remind us of him.. May you Rest In Peace
