Details are sparse, but the information I have so far is that Richard had a fall at home in which he suffered several fractures. He was admitted to hospital where he died; I understand with his sisters Trish (his twin) and Jackie present, as well as Trish’s husband and children.
There is likely to be a private cremation, with possibly a memorial service later, but that is very much yet to be confirmed.
As previously mentioned, Richard had been supported by Peter and Rod, and that involved regular meetings for meals amongst other activities. The most recent was just last week, and Bill Houston, Graham Smith and Tony McKenna joined in as well.
