Richard Roberts passed away in his sleep last week. He was a long time member of our group, and produced our walk program for several years.
His widow, Monica has asked that members should know that the funeral will be at Stubbings Church on Monday, 4th June, at 12.00. All are welcome.
Eve Norton has written:
I will always remember his kind and gentle manner when I took over the walks programme from him in 2009. He helped me sort out problems with the computer and compilation of the programme when my experience was somewhat lacking.
My other memories of Richard are concerned with his participation in the performance of the opera Eugene Onegin with Windsor and Eton Opera Society . I persuaded him to come along to the rehearsals and he took part in the chorus for the whole week of shows at the Farrer theatre in Eton. I think he enjoyed the singing but was not so keen on the ballroom scene when the chorus had to do the waltz and the polonaise- very stately.
