It is with great sadness we have to record that Nick Hawkins, one of our club members, has passed away suddenly. Nick was an inventive creator of games, working at the time of his death both on the Props and Pilots WW2 air rules, and his delightful Twilight Practice variant on the Sharp Practice rules.
His brother writes:
I am writing to share with you some very sad news. My dearly beloved brother Nick has passed away at the very young age of 55. He died at home in his bed of natural causes. Just as this will come as a shock to you, so it has been a shock to me. Nick had not knowingly been in poor health but had an undiagnosed condition that caused his death. Thankfully, I am assured that he would gradually have lost consciousness and would not have experienced any pain.
We all have our memories of Nick, – too many to share. To me though in amongst the great intelligence, numerous skills and his human frailties, he was always my very loving and much loved big brother. His loss has left a void that will never be filled.
Nick will be missed: our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
