We are sorry to hear that Ron Humberstone has passed away. Some will know him through his sports connections, others will remember his letters to the Your Say page in the Star, particularly his anti-royal rants.
We knew him as a lover of New Orleans jazz music. Our first meeting with him and his wife Jean was at Silkstone Lodge where the Barnsley Jazz society held live jazz sessions every Monday night and they were regular attenders.
When Jean passed away Ron still attended accompanied by one or more of his daughters. For the last few years that has been at the Fairway Hotel. We send our sympathy to all his family,
Ken & Mary Hammond
