Very sad day, it was a pleasure to have met you and your car, a true Locoster - thoughts to the family of course

My condolences go to his family, he did not suffer too long which is the only consolation.





yours, Pete

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.

Such sad news. Farewell Chippy.

My deepest sympathy for his family at this most testing of times

Sad loss of a great engineer and a thoroughly nice guy.

Mind you, he's probably 'upstairs' ordering the steel for his next project as we speak......

Very sad news but as said before no more suffering.

I will certainly miss the Ray stories, and the banter we had at our meetings.

I've seen this car so many times at Stoneleigh but never the man himself.
You've left a nice mark behind there buddy. Now lay back and take it easy. As has been said, may you always find your tools first time and your drill bits never blunt. R.I.P.

Just to let everyone know

I attended Rays funeral today and went to the house afterwards

I printed off this thread and gave it to Rays Son (Steve) to read at some point and to pass it round when the time was right
He seemed genuinely thankful that so many people had sent their condolences and best wishes

Steve also mentioned about meeting up at the Ace Cafe at some point
(he also has petrol running through his veins - hardly surprising given he's Rays son!)

The Ace Cafe is/was a massive part of Rays life and its a place I have never been

I will update as and when this is organised if anyone else would like to meet up

Regards
Rob

Had a text from Steve (Rays son) today
He asked to thank everyone for the nice comments and said it was nice to see he was appreciated in that way

He also reminded me that we should do the Ace Cafe

He attached this fab picture of Ray with his first "posh car" in Germany circa 1958 ish

My thoughts and condolences are with the family. I know exactly what they are going through and how they are feeling. I lost my Mother to the exact same illness over exactly the same time scale. They must count themselves lucky in that they WILL ALWAYS have their memories of RAY, those can NEVER be taken away.

my idea would be a proper 'chippy run' sometime (possibly yearly) where all the lcb can get together!
i think it would be a great idea. possibly at a sprint event or something where the lcb can turn out in force

Give us plenty of notice then all the peeps who's cars (like mine) are in bits can get them ready in time!

Cheers,
James
