Ray Ward

It is with much sadness and a feeling of great loss I have to announce the sudden death of Ray Ward, Vice Chairman of the Federation of British Bonsai Societies.   Ray died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday, 15th October.   He will be greatly missed by the FoBBS Committee and by the members of his local Bonsai Societies.   Ray was member of the Sussex Bonsai Group and the Crawley Bonsai Society of which he was a founder member.

He was a tireless worker in the promotion of Bonsai visiting many organised bonsai events and bonsai societies in his role as Vice Chairman.

To me he was a very good friend; the help he gave me in building and manning the FoBBS exhibit at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show each year will be very hard to replace.

Personally, I will remember Ray for the work he did and his enthusiasm for bonsai.   He will be greatly missed.

At this very sad time our thoughts and wishes go out to his wife, Peta, his family and friends.
