What a shame, the forum really feels like it will never be the same. Rest in peace Reg.

Haven't had the chance to take this news in yet, but its really a sad time, and a bit off to feel this way for someone I have never met in real life. A lot has already been said but what a character he was. Intelligent, opinionated, respectful, humourous at times.

Along with Nev and the others who have made this forum so good Reg will be missed greatly. RIP Reginald.

Hi Everyone!

One of Andy/Reg's sons here, glad you managed to work out the true identity of the illusive Reg in the end! Just to confirm, if there was still any confusion, that the Beehive Cricket post was accurate.

After having this thread passed onto me by PaulD, vis his step son, I just wanted to pop on and say thanks for all the brilliant tributes and words to reminder him. I passed this onto my Brother and we were both touched by the legacy he has seemingly left here. He loved this forum, I still remember some 18/19 odd years ago when we got our first PC and internet at home when he signed up.

Thanks for posting posting in what must be a hard time for you all.

I don't need to repeat what has already been said here (and on Twitter incidentally), all very genuine and with warmth. I'm sorry to have never met him in real life.

I bet he is looking down smiling on you all, Rothman's yearbook in hand ...

We could perhaps audition for someone to take the role on?

I think his shirt number should be retired. Those boots are too big to fill.

Thanks for posting RegJr. I lost my old man when I was 32 - don't care how old you are, it's fucking hard.

He will be missed.

Hello there. I visited my old mate's house today to meet with the ex-partner of 'Reg' and only found out about this website then and the nom de plume of my old chum. Do people now know 'Reg's' identity? I collected a lot of 60s STFC programmes today from the house. It's been a sad time for me but great to discover how he was held in such esteem on this site. I have discussed with 'Reg's' ex-partner about holding a memorial walk for him. An idea she loves. That will be in May and will be to do with the 1926 General Strike in Swindon - detailed history 'Reg' found out from me shortly before his decline. I will liaise with 'Reg's' ex-partner about holding a performative remembrance do at the Beehive later in the year when circumstances allow. If anyone is interested in that, then please let me know. And let me know if 'Reg's' identity is still unknown. Best wishes from an STFC exile in Stroud.
