1941 - 2013
There have been many tributes to Bob Turner, a much respected friend and colleague of many in the world of fencing. He was a real gentleman with a great sense of fun, always fair and genuine.
Bob was a great supporter of Fencing across the Commonwealth and was one of the stalwarts of British and Welsh Fencing. At the time of his death, he was Chairman of Welsh Fencing, Chairman of Whitchurch Fencing Club and since 2009, President of the Commonwealth Veterans' Fencing Association. Bob was a source of inspiration and encouragement to so many and will be sorely missed.
Arun Kumar Vij
The Fencing community was saddened to hear of the sudden death of CFF Vice President – Arun Kumar Vij. Mr Vij passed away on 30 June 2012. He was, amongst other things, the Secretary General of the Fencing Association of India.
It is with great sadness that the CFF posts this release and we aresure all members of the Fencing community will endorse our message of sympathy to his family.
2nd March 1941 - 13th May 2012
With a career in Fencing spanning more than 50 years, John Ramsay was instrumental in establishing the Commonwealth Fencing Federation (CFF) Technical Commission and became the first Chair in 2002. John was dedicated to making the Technical Commission a proficient entity that would ensure CFF Championships were run as quality fencing events, wherever they might be held.
John will be sorely missed, but he will not be forgotten. He was a dear friend of many in the Commonwealth Fencing family. His legacy is the assurance that world-class fencing will always distinguish CFF Championships and that we remain committed to maintaining his standards and vision.
16th March 1943 - 14th November 2011
Piers Jones was a modern-day Renaissance man in the wide range of his interests, abilities and achievements. He was a teacher, fencer, fencing coach, actor, violinist,organist and choirmaster, computer buff, businessman, traveller and bon-viveur, both practitioner and administrator in all of them.
1990 he was elected President of the Commonwealth Fencing Federation. He held this post until 2002, through three Commonwealth championships. Piers was quite seriously ill for the last few years of his life, not that he let it hold him back much, but he maintained close contact with his fencing friends, old and not-so-old, to the end.
