Although a keen runner in his youth, Brian became a member of Newcastle (Staffs) Triathlon Club as a cyclist in recent years and joined us on some of our Saturday rides.
We had the pleasure of his company at our last two training camps in France where members really got to know him and his sense of humour, especially when he agreed to put on a wetsuit and join us on our river swim – an experience that was new to him and was enjoyed by all. Brian returned from the most recent training camp only 10 days ago.
He was great company on our rides and when we were all relaxing together as he regaled us all with his memories of his time at Hanley High School.
On our last trip Brian became a grandfather when his daughter gave birth to twins while we were away, and he was looking forward to seeing the new arrivals on his return.
Brian will be greatly missed by those that knew him and our thoughts go out to all of his family at this extremely sad and difficult time.
