Ken Newman – RIP

It is with great sadness that we must pass on the news that Ken died from COVID on 31 January. Tragically, he was diagnosed with the virus on his 100th birthday on 13 January.

Our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time. Due to the virus they were unable to be with him in his last illness and his birthday was the last time they saw him.
