Was not quite sure how to do this, but I figured a simple post would be best.
My father Bob, was a big fan of this forum and I know a few of you have met him at Duxford and at the rolling road days he organised/attended.
Unfortunately Dad passed away yesterday morning following a short battle with cancer. He always loved driving and polishing his immaculate Mondeo ST and I hope he has passed on some useful info to some of you as I know he gained a lot from this forum.
If anyone might wish to attend his funeral it will be held at Crownhill Crematorium in Milton Keynes at 3:30pm on Monday.

Kind regards

James Renshaw

I am sorry for your loss.
I am sure he will be missed alot.


Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese. And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them.
It's either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Chan-Chu. But I think it's Colin.

My deepest sympathies, met your Dad a couple of times, an allround decent fellow who's knowledge has helped quite a few of us.
He loved to take the mickey out of my 'tinny' doors on my car as he had covered the inside of his with sound deadening.
He convinced me about the benefits of a Roveron box and I can't even say Roveron without picturing your Dad.
Truly a sad day for all who ever knew him.
