In Memoriam

Feeling a bit sad today. One of the longest supporters of this blog, and of my attempts at writing books, was found dead at his home in Hampshire (UK) yesterday, apparently of a heart attack. He lived alone and was in isolation from the current pandemic but, thankfully it seems to have been a peaceful death. He also helped with research for the next book, if I ever get to finish and publish it – it will be dedicated to him.

He also composed piano music especially for me to play, inspired by fitness themes. That’s not something most guys get to do!

He didn’t ‘do’ fitness himself these days, but I know that, in his younger days, he used to be keen on wrestling.

Rest in peace, Ian W.


About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. Each friend becomes a piece of us. I know that one way my Grandmother healed when she lost a friend was to make a new friend.
