Hi,

Very very sad news. Like many on here, I have known Vasken for many years due to the many bake off around the place.

He was a top bloke and a true gentleman. I always enjoyed his company.

It’s been a tough week as another friend of mine was found dead on the moors in Sheffield.

I’m off out in a bit and will raise a glass to Vasken tonight.

Ah, that’s a real shame. :frowning:


#519

Very sad, sounds like he made the most of his time though. RIP Vasken.


#520

Saddened to hear.
Always a pleasure to meet him He will be greatly missed, that’s for certain.


#521

so so sad, those aggresive brain tumours are bastards, lost a colleague to one last year - RIP Vasken


#522

Another sad event.


#523

Met Vasken on a few occasions and spent a nice afternoon in Manchester with him indulging in another of his passions, photography and his Leica M3. A lovely man.


#524

Shit. I had no idea he was Ill. A short while ago he contacted me about making him a tweed jacket and we discussed meeting on his next trip to London, he must have been diagnosed inbetween. He was a lovely chap, we spoke on the phone quite a few times. Really sad…


#525

Only met him a couple of times but a really lovely guy.


#526

Sad news indeed.

RIP Vasken


#527

Oh bummer, what shitty news. Vasken was one of life’s true gentlemen - the world will be much worse without him. We spoke many times late last year because he’d decided to buy a Nagra CD player, didn’t have a clue about his illness though.

RIP Plato…

I’m sure I’ll have met him at Jim’s but I can’t recall how he looked. Does anyone have a picture of him at that (or another) bake-off?


#529

Bald headed bloke that turned up at Spider’s Halloween gig?

:cry:


#530

Is he the chap next to the bird feeder?


#531

Hi,

That’s him.


#532

RIP Tessa Jowell

I had the privilege to meet her once. Had an unusual characteristic for a politician; empathy yet could be steely hard when fighting for a cause she felt strongly about


#533

Impressive woman in all respects. Oh that we had more politicians like her.

RIP

I missed this thread while I was away.
i am very shocked to hear about Vasken.
I met him a number of times and have nothing but good memories of him, he bought some unusual speakers from the Dunlop brothers and I had an open invite to come and listen to them which unfortunately never happened.


#535

Rest in pece Glen Branca.


#536

I’ve realised I’d exchanged some messages with Vasken. He was toying with the idea of buying a Porsche. Clearly an intellectual and a gent to boot.
