Death of OF while live broadcasting

Tim Gouch - Gen X Radio - small
Tim Gough (M80-85) died unexpectedly on 24 October 2022 while broadcasting live on GenX Radio Suffolk. He is suspected to have died from a heart attack mid-song during his programme, which he was broadcasting from his home 35 miles from the station’s headquarters in Ipswich. His funeral is on 30th November as a private service for family only, but a memorial service is being held afterwards at Bury Cathedral at 2.15pm. More details of the memorial service can be found by clicking here

National and regional newspapers carried obituaries, including The Guardian, Daily Mail and the Ipswich Star.

A number of OFs will be attending the memorial service, and many of his contemporaries living locally, may wish to attend also.  A small group of OFs have made donations to raise funds to allow the installation of a new defibrillator in Tim’s honour, to be located in Framlingham somewhere on the market square, if possible, or another suitable location nearby.

Here is a link to his Distinguished entry which now includes a wonderful tribute given by Ruth Elwood (P80-84) at the Norfolk Supper in November 2022.
