I have just received an email from FOBBS to inform me that Paul Goff has passed away.
This is sad and unexpected news that will affect many in the UK Bonsai Community and my best wishes and condolences go out to his Family.
Below is the full wording of the e-mail:
It is with a tremendous sense of loss that we have to announce the death of Paul Goff, on Monday November 10th following a severe stroke last week.. He will be very greatly missed by all in the bonsai world in the UK. Known most especially for his skill with photography and his ability to teach us all how to display our trees in the best possible way. He was a scroll painter, photographer, rock musician and bonsai artist. And at 62 was still a man young in heart ready to enjoy life to the full. His spirit of enjoyment and extensive knowledge will be missed by all who knew him
Our thoughts and wishes go out to his partner Vivienne as well as to his family and friends at this very sad time.
For those wishing to express their condolences, the e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
