We are sorry to report the passing of Pete Ford.
Pete was a very early member of the BOS and was involved in the activities of the Birmingham group including being a founder member of mini meetings. He adored the work of Fred Rohm and authored several BOS booklets dedicated to Fred’s work. He also served the Council and was General Secretary for a number of years.
When he was seventeen he underwent a kidney transplant and went on to be much involved in the transplant olympics association. This and other interests latterly busied his time but he was always interested to know how the world of origami was progressing. We last saw him at BOS50. Those who knew him will remember a very kind person with a great sense of humour and a pretty good paper folder too!
