Ron Powney passed away

27 Dec 2017

It is with much sadness that the Powney family have to inform you that Ron Powney passed away at 2pm on Christmas Eve.

As many of you know Ron had several health issues, the latest of which had required him to be admitted to Intensive Care 4 weeks ago. Whilst the latest operation was successful and he was recovering, he contracted an infection on his lungs and passed away peacefully.

The family will provide further details in due course as to the arrangements.

  2. God I'm gonna miss him. The racing picture of Dad shown is in the West London C A 25 on 5th October 1952 with a time of 1-00-11, Club Record and won him the West London BAR in 1952 over 25, 50, 100 miles and the 12 hour. Note the stopwatch on the handlebars - pre Garmin! - and the compulsory bell. Best wishes to all, Brian
