    By Patrick Ball

    My father passed away on 5 January 2014, aged 93. Eugene (Gene) registered in 1944 and worked for the whole of his working life for the Boots Company. A dedicated pharmacist, he nevertheless also brought to work his outside interests in photography and high-fidelity sound. This caused some consternation among his seniors when his Weoley Castle, Birmingham, branch outsold many larger branches in cameras and audio. Nevertheless, his prime focus was always the wellbeing of the patient.
