Ronnie Jappy from Leverhulme Drive was buried in Gress following a service at Martin’s
The 61-year-old grew up in Stornoway and joined the Royal Air Force Regiment, serving
in Hong Kong, Germany and England for 12 years.
After his return to Lewis he worked on a fishery protection vessel for a short spell.
For many years he was an island postman and latterly he was employed in Tesco.
Mr Jappy’s friendly, cheerful and smiling nature and his lighthearted banter suited
his volunteer role as a cruise ship ambassador, welcoming passenger liner tourists
arriving ashore in Stornoway.
He was vice-chair of the local branch of the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA)
and also its standard bearer.
Regardless of the weather, he faithfully attended every annual Remembrance Sunday
memorial service as well as Battle of Britain parades.
