Subject: 2024 Obit: Richard Bridge - Lower Stoke/Medway
We knew it was coming, he told us so himself. A cancer diagnosis that he decided wasn't going to rob him of the pleasure of his last days. No chemo to prolong but cause misery, just well-managed medications and eating what he wanted as long as he could.

This was posted on his Facebook page today:
Yesterday Richard Bridge lost his battle with the big C. Those who knew him will know he went out fighting and swearing until the end. We lit the bonfire in his honour last night, and we think you should do the same.

If you have videos of him singing, playing, drinking, volvoing or burning things (all the things he loved) please do share them here.
He didn’t believe in ceremony, so there won’t be a traditional funeral but we’ll be holding a wake for him some time soon.

There are posts and lots of links to music on his Real.RichardBridge Facebook page. (The reason it is "real" is a long and old Mudcat story for another day.)

RIP, friend. I enjoyed working with you (virtually) for the last 15 years.
