It is with great sadness….


Diary entry by his daughter:

It is with great sadness that  I have to announce that Dudley passed away at home at 4.40 this morning, 4 December 2009.  William, James and I were with him.  It was very peaceful and he was in no pain.  He just drifted gently away.

He had a wonderful and  – at times – charmed life, most of which you can read about in the postings on this blog and on his website.  I hope, very much, you enjoy browsing through his stories, all of which were written by him.

He had achieved his aim of reaching his 100th birthday and didn’t want to go on.  His great wish, since his birthday, was to be with Ann, his wife, and his brothers Martyn and John.  His sense of humour stayed with him to the end but he had had enough of this world.

The funeral will be on Friday 11 December.  I will post full details over the next few days.

RIP our wonderful and special father
