Received from Diana Birch, of the Budokwai:

Monday 24th January 2005

Richard Bowen Judo Historian, Founder of the Kano Society and Vice President of the Budokwai passed away in his sleep early this morning.

Words are inadequate to describe how saddened I am to be sending this email to you all. Dickie was a man of the utmost integrity and an honourable judo man in the mould of Koizumi and Kano. His passing is a very deep loss to the Judo World and a personal loss to all his many friends and colleagues. Our sincere condolences go to Ayako and their son Sean.

Details of funeral arrangements, and an obituary will be posted on the website in the very near future.
