Prof. Rodney Fitch CBE 1938-2014
It is with a heavy heart that the Fitch family bring the sad news that Father, Grandfather and Husband, Rodney Fitch passed away on the morning of the 20th October 2014.
His cancer returned in April this year and although he fought valiantly against this horrible disease, it took its hold very quickly and his health deteriorated very rapidly in the last couple of weeks.
Rodney spent his last few weeks at his beautiful house in Wiltshire and passed away in the early hours of this morning peacefully surrounded by all his loving family.
Messages of condolence can be left below or using the contact page, please feel free to pass this sad news on to other people.
Rodney’s ashes will be buried at St Michaels’ Aldbourne after a small funeral. We plan to hold a celebration of his life in London in early 2015 which we will update you on later.
Rodney made a request for no wreaths. In lieu of flowers, we suggest anyone wishing to do so can make a donation in his memory to either Cancer Research [http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/support-us/donate/donate-money] or Prospect Hospice Savernake Appeal [http://www.prospect-hospice.net/Supporter/Savernake-Appeal] to help support the good work of the hospice who were of great support to Rodney and us in his final days.
With kind regards,
Janet, Polly, Emily, Louisa, Tessa, Edward and his nine Grandchildren
