Hi All Bashers,

We’ve all got used to bad news recently but today it got even worse when Ruth “Mayhem” phoned me to tell me that her wonderful Dad ~ John”Debacle” passed away today. He was only 70, far too young to be taken, but having said that he had packed more high quality diverse sporting activities and a vast range of interests and hobbies into those 70 years than any one else I have ever known.

He was and is a unique human being . A GP Doctor and also a family man. He and his very understanding wife Pauline, had 6 children ~ all of them first class likeable well rounded individuals and an absolute credit to them both.   I know that he will be sadly missed by them and all of us , BUT always fondly remembered by all who had the privilege to have known him and have had the pleasure of his company.

Debacle was an absolute Gentleman with a strong faith who cared for his fellow man. Words alone cannot do justice to the life of this remarkable man, John Arkle, who we all had the benefit to be acquainted with.

More details will follow as soon as I have them.

Finally, can I add some joyous news, and that is that Ruth’s Baby is due sometime around the 9th April . We wish her and Kevin well for this happy event.

once again more details as soon as I have them.
