Uncle Albert, writer of “Grumpy old men of Los Gallardos” passes away

I have just received the sad news that “Uncle Albert”, aka David Hawkins, writer for many years of the popular “Grumpy old men of Los Gallardos” column in local papers, has passed away peacefully in Huercal-Overa hospital after a short illness.

Known as Uncle Albert after his similarity with the character from Only Fools and Horses, he was a charming gentleman who always had a happy word and a smile for everyone, and he will be missed.

His beloved “ferret” is being looked after by friends and family.
