Former UUP Councillor and previous Mayor of Coleraine, William King MBE, has sadly passed away.
William represented the Ulster Unionists in the Bann DEA both for Coleraine Borough Council and then the new Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council.
UUP Group Leader Cllr Darryl Wilson said : “My Ulster Unionist colleagues and I were shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden passing of William King today. William was a well-known and respected public representative for many year’s, including his time on Coleraine Borough Council where he served for many years (representing Bann DEA), including a spell as Mayor, and indeed on Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
“William was a hard working man, a great Councillor, but above all this a dedicated family man.
“Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Daphne, his daughters and all impacted by this sad, sad news.
“Can I also thank the current Mayor and the group leads from right across the political spectrum that paid there respects at tonight’s Council meeting.”
