Born: June 25, 1929; Died: June 17, 2012.
John Armour, who has died aged 82, was a Glasgow-born education administrator who made his name in Africa and Canada.
As an altar boy he assisted at daily mass, and at the age of 16, decided to test his vocation for the priesthood. The subsequent five years in seminary contributed to his education and spiritual development, but not to an eventual call to the priesthood. He returned to Glasgow and qualified as a certified accountant in 1957 at the age of 28.
