Just read this on Disco4, I know Bruce wasn't on here much but had posted recently and some members may have known him

RIP Bruce

I'm very sad to announce that site user, BL Farrar, passed away in Huddersfield in July at the age of 67, after a short battle with Prostate Cancer.

Bruce Lee Farrar joined the site in 2006 and made his mark very quickly ...mostly by upsetting all of the site stalwarts of the day Smile . He was the first to admit he was a marmite character, he had strong moral views and opinions and he fought his corner with vigor ....his seemingly endless essays of responses always made me chuckle .

I met him on a factory tour and, as is often is the case, the people you judge from the written word who are going to be the least friendly when you meet them in person are in fact quite the opposite, he was a gentleman to talk to.

Despite on many occasions my sparring with him to the point of distraction to others, we actually got on well in the background.

A month before he passed we exchanged several PM's and I hadn't heard anything further until today when Gareth asked me if I knew where he was. I did a search and sadly found his family notice.

I'm sure he'll forgive me for letting everyone know how much he relied upon this site and all of us to distract him from his darkest hours.

...Disco 3 has been a place to escape to that isn't health, family or work....total diversion. I do read almost everything.

.....Maybe it isn't realised what the forum provides

...A diversion to another place - essential.

Thanks
Regards
Bruce



RIP Bruce Sad
