Terence Ruffle RIP

I am sad to have to announce the death of my old friend, Terence Ruffle, the author of this blog. Terry died on 3 October 2020 after an illness which lasted for about a year. He was 63.

This site will remain in place indefinitely, as it has material which is potentially useful to some people. I will moderate any comments which may be posted on existing articles. I’m not going to write an obituary as this blog serves as one on its own.

  5. So sad to hear this news i used to drink with Terry and Mark in the old Queens Head down on the quay back in the late 70’s, and together with Gary Pratt and Jon Corby used to follow his band The Accidents, went to a number of his gigs and remember the first single they released . RIP Terry a real character – I moved away from Maldon in the early eighties although carried on playing Rugby there for a number years commuting from Southend -eventually left the UK in 1989 and now retired in Asia.

  6. I am saddened to hear of the passing of Terrance. Although late in the day, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends. We first made contact quite some while ago when we were both researching our family history – my Great, grandfather being Charlie Birch who worked for/travelled with Bostock and Wombwell’s Menagerie. I would like to add, should anyone care to try and contact me about ant related (please excuse the pun) family history they can do so by email: chasb67@hotmail.co.uk
