25 Feb 2022
In memoriam

His wife Helena contacted the office to tell of his death and send in these words about Ron...

'Ronald William Daniels (59) died at the age of 80, from unforeseen complications in surgery following a short illness on 25th February 2022, the day of his birth. He was a larger-than-life character, who greatly enjoyed his school and University years, where he studied Maths, Applied Maths and Physics at Reading University.

He played much rugby post education (including Harlequins, Esher and Finchley) and his love for the sport and his beloved Harlequins never waned. He also led a rich and varied international career, spending the majority of it across the Telco and IT/software consulting industry, with a stint running the Dutch operation for Logica plc. In retirement he immersed himself in rotary, becoming an international figure in the organisation. Not only personally raising much money but also planning and implementing highly impactful domestic and international projects.

He was a dedicated family man and is survived by his second wife and great love Helena, his son Jeremy, and grandchildren Molly, Charlie and Luka, as well as his stepchildren, Siobhan, and Dominic and their children, Sarah and Tom, Emily, Elisa and Harrison. All who bought him huge pleasure and he loved unconditionally.

He is missed daily as a husband, dad, grandad and friend but is always there, not just in our hearts but who we are.'
