The news of his passing was officially announced by Gainsborough Town Council earlier on Monday, although he passed away on Saturday, November 25 after battling lung cancer.

In memory, Councillor Richard Craig, Leader of Gainsborough Town Council, shared his heartfelt condolences. He said: “It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our Mayor Tim Davies.

“Across the years, Tim had served as Mayor, District and Town Councillor, whilst also devoting much of his time to supporting many community and voluntary sector organisations in and around our town.

“Tim was passionate about Gainsborough and always wanted to do the right thing by the town and its people. Known by many, he will be missed by many, along with all his fellow councillors.

“Most importantly though, to express our deepest sympathy and kind wishes to all of his family in this difficult time. Our thoughts are with you. You will be missed Tim, rest peacefully.

West Lindsey District Councillor Matthew Boles (Liberal Democrat), also expressed his sympathies. He shared: “I’m devastated to hear the news of the sudden passing of our Town Mayor Cllr Tim Davies.

“Whilst I obviously knew he was ill it has come as a shock as I was only with him last Sunday at the Remembrance Service. I guess that is a mark of the man that he was still carrying out his civic duties whilst so ill.
