The following comes from Gravesend RFC.

It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Ian (Tarzan) Turnnidge earlier this week at the Eleanor Hospice.
Ian passed away after a long and brave battle with cancer, supported by his wife Mandy who was by his side until the end.
GRFC club Chairman Mark Bruce said “He definitely fought the good fight and always had the best interests of the Club at heart whether that was on the pitch, in the bar or whilst as a serving officer of the Club. He will definitely be missed and am sure we will all get a chance to pay our respects. We will let you all know details in due course”.
