Dr Tony Ryle 1927 - 2016

It is with great sadness we let ACAT members know that Dr Tony Ryle died peacefully on Thursday, 29th September, 2016 surrounded by family members.  He was 89.  

The family has set up a memorial page at just giving should people wish to remember Tony by making a donation to MSF which was a charity he supported actively (www.justgiving.com/fundraising/AnthonyRyle

This news is deeply felt by the CAT community both in the UK and overseas and ACAT sends its sincere condolences to Tony's family.

ACAT is holding a one day conference in memory of Tony Ryle on Friday, 10th March 2017 which will be a time to come together and celebrate Tony’s life and the wonderful legacy he has given us.  If you wish to attend and would like further information please go to:  http://www.acat.me.uk/event/903/legacy+of+tony+ryle+-+one+day+celebration+2017-03-10.htm
