Prof. Rodney Fitch CBE 1938-2014
It was with a heavy heart that the Fitch family relayed the sad news that Father, Grandfather and Husband, Rodney Fitch passed away on the morning of the 20th October 2014.
His cancer had returned in April 2014 and although he fought valiantly against this horrible disease, it took its hold very quickly and his health deteriorated very rapidly.
Rodney spent his last few weeks at his beautiful house in Wiltshire and passed away in the early hours of the morning peacefully surrounded by all his loving family.
Rodney’s ashes were buried at St Michaels’ Aldbourne after a small funeral. A celebration of his life was also held at Cental St. Matin’s, London on the 10th September 2015 were many friends and Fitch alumni were gathered #rememberingrodney.
Anyone wishing to do so can make a donation in his memory to either Cancer Research or Prospect Hospice 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
