It is my sad duty to let you know that Simon died peacefully on Friday 27 Jan after a short illness.
He had been in a hospice for 5 days and we understand that he was very calm, collected and pain-free until his end.
It was decided that Simons funeral will be family only and it was Simon's wish that no flowers were to be sent for his funeral.
Simon's family have expressed their wish that if anyone would like to make a donation in lieu of flowers it should go to St Margaret's Hospice, Little Tarrat Lane, Yeovil, BA20 2HU www.somerset-hospice.org.uk/donate/donate-now
Finally - we believe that it is intended that memorial drinks will be held to celebrate Simon's life at Bisley on a date to be decided.
