Dr. Richard J Palmer MBE

Post by Simon Rogers » Mon Jan 04, 2021 4:57 pm

I am sorry to report that Richard Palmer died on Christmas Day morning in Cardiff University Hospital.
He passed away peacefully after a recurrence of the leukaemia which had first afflicted him in late 2018.
Richard had been in Cardiff for trials of a new drug and, being a scientist, he was keen to help in the development of something that may help others in the future.
Richard was life Vice-President of Downend & Fishponds Chess Club which play in the Bristol & District Chess League.
He was also Secretary for 26 years from 1992 until 2018.
His death was posted on the Chess Club's website on the 31st December in the News Section at:
www.downendchess.com
There is a lengthy tribute about his academic career at Oxford University and him writing puzzles for the Telegraph and Bristol Times, along with a picture.
RIP
