A Concord man who once served as the queen of Englandís personal piper was remembered by loved ones Wednesday for his mischievous sense of humor, distinguished military career and love of Scottish music.

The service for Pipe Major Gordon Webster at St. Paulís Church began in a fitting way Ė with a soaring rendition of ďHighland Cathedral,Ē a traditional melody for the bagpipe, by New Hampshire Pipes & Drums, a pipe band he helped found. Among the pipers was Campbell Webster, Gordon Websterís son, who plays professionally.
