It is with much regret and sadness that I have to inform you that Bill Brown, a very early member of Bonsai Kai and FoBBS, sadly passed away on Jan 29th 2018. He was over 90 and had suffered for a period from Parkinsonís disease; he died peacefully.

He was an antique dealer by trade and we have a number of items that will always remind us of him and his great enthusiasm for bonsai. He travelled on many of the tours we organised on behalf of FoBBS to bonsai nurseries and Conventions in Europe, America and Japan. In 1991 he worked with us to organise the FoBBS exhibit at the B.C.I. Convention held at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham.
