Bob Brindley passes away in Phuket

PHUKET: Friends and family of Bob Brindley are mourning his passing in Phuket on Sunday.

Grenville Fordham, commodore of the Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC), informed members of the club of Mr Brindley’s passing with the following announcement:

“It is with great regret that I have to inform you that one of ACYC’s staunchest supporters and valued members, Bob Brindley, passed away on Sunday evening.”

“According to his son, Steve, Bob knew it was time and had contacted all his family and friends to say goodbye. The cancer had started to give him a lot of pain in the preceding couple of days and thankfully he went quickly and did not suffer for a prolonged period.”

“Bob’s tireless contribution to the club with his raffles, serving on the committee and hard work helping get the new club premises up and running was invaluable. We will miss him.”
