A CARTMEL show boss, successful racehorse owner and farmer, and prominent businessman, has died.
Maurice Chapman MBE died of a suspected heart attack on June 14, two weeks before his 74th birthday.
He leaves behind sons Ian and Marcus, daughter Melissa Harrington, grand-children Lucia and Alex, brother Ken and partner Jane Barnes.
Mr Chapman was elected president of the Cartmel Show in 2011 and this year was due to be chairman – a position that will be left open as a mark of respect.
His funeral will be held at Cartmel Priory at 11am on Monday, followed by cremation at Barrow crematorium and a reception at Cartmel Racecourse.
Family flowers only, donations to Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Injured Jockeys’ fund.
