It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the unexpected death of our very dear friend Ken Robertson who passed away peacefully this afternoon at 12:43.
He had been in intensive care at Torbay Hospital following a cardiac arrest whilst riding his bike yesterday morning. His son was with him and the radio was tuned to the French news station.
Ken was a legend in the Cycling community, having spent over 50 years competing in, and organising races. He was an inspirational man, someone with so much knowledge and passion for our sport. He was also a true gentleman who always acted with dignity and honour.
We shall all miss him terribly having been a mainstay of the Mid Devon CC for generations. He will leave a gaping hole but we will keep his memory alive within the club and the wider sport
We will all have our own thoughts and reflections of our time spent with Ken, which I am sure at some point can be shared, for the benefit of his family.
Rest in Peace Ken – thanks for all the memories.
Mike Gratton – Chair on behalf of the Mid Devon CC Committee
