Roy Canning writes to say he is sorry to have to tell you that TA Member Owen Harden died on Tuesday evening (15th October).

He had not been well for some time, and while Roy was on holiday he was taken bad and was in and out of hospital, gradually going downhill until he died.

He had not ridden for some time, being on oxygen after heart and breathing problems, but he came out on events on his motor bike when he could, oxygen bottle in tow.

He had been on the TASE Committee for many years, being our captain and regularly supported our gatherings. He was helped by his wife Carol who herself is now housebound, Owen giving her devoted care over the years even though he had medical problems himself..

Owen’s funeral will be held on Monday 4th. November at Margate Crematorium at 1:45 pm.

Family flowers only but donations to The British Heart Foundation will be appreciated.

The funeral directors are Twyman and Holmes, 42 King Street, Ramsgate, Kent. CT11 8NT.  Tel 01843 852758.
