Pottsie has asked me to let you know that Rubber passed away peacefully on Saturday in his surfing chalet aged 83, after a long battle with prostate cancer.
He was the 3rd oldest person in the bash and led a very interesting and full life. He also had a varied and successful career as a prestigious hairdresser for top stars in London’s West End (and later in Dartmouth – hence the Bash nickname) as well as being a hotelier and a water-sport instructor.
In addition to being a competent and adventurous off-road cyclist, he was a boxer in the army, a single-handicap golfer, good skier, windsurfer and sailor. Quite a Guy !
Rubber will be remembered for all of the above and his great sense of humour and mild and gentle nature.
