It is with great sorrow that we report the passing of Ipswich Wildlife Group chairman Ray Sidaway. Ray died on Thursday 10th January 2019 in Ipswich Hospital with his family around him. Ray went into hospital in early December and was diagnosed with a rare heart infection from which he never recovered.
Ray will be greatly missed by this group and others for which he tirelessly volunteered his time, effort, enthusiasm, knowledge and wisdom.
We have been told by Ray’s wife Jen that the funeral will be 11.45am on Friday 8th February at Ipswich Crematorium.
Any enquires that would have gone to Ray, could they please be sent to Leila Matata
