TIM STOCK 1944-2009


CATEGORIES:

It was with great sadness that the Club learned yesterday of the death of former Chairman Tim Stock, aged 65, who suffered a fatal heart attack at his home in Spain in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Tim had a long association with the BRSCC both as a competitor and administrator. A native of Ipswich Tim joined the Club’s East Anglian Centre in 1970 eventually becoming Chairman which gave him a seat on the main Board of Directors.

He served as Vice Chairman for much of Howard Strawford’s tenure as Chairman taking over from Howard when he retired in 1999. Tim also had a brief spell as Chief Executive between 1998 and 1999 filling the gap after John Nicol vacated the post to join Brands Hatch Leisure.

Current Chairman Bernard Cottrell took over the reins from Tim in May 2002 although he continued to serve as Vice-Chairman until stepping down from the Board in March 2005.

Bernard Cottrell said “Tim was a great servant to the Club and he will be much missed. His considerable business acumen was a real asset to the BRSCC as was his perspective as a competitor. It is a sad irony that he died almost nine years to the day that his great friend John Nicol passed away. Coincidentally, both Tim & John died over the Formula Ford Festival weekend – a meeting both men were hugely fond of.”

The BRSCC would like extend its deepest condolences to Tim’s family on their sad loss.
