We have received the following message from Reg Curtis, Bill's son. Sad news for all of us: Bill was well known to many in the MLAGB and held a number of positions in the Association including Vice President and National Treasurer. Bill was a wealth of information on all things related to muzzle loading: he joined the MLAGB in 1956 and was one of our longest serving members with membership number 19. I have sent condolences to his family on behalf of MLAGB. - Jon Harper Smith (Chairman)
"It is with deep regret that I write to inform you that my father, Bill (William) Curtis passed away on 4 January 2021. He died peacefully in Leominster Community Hospital having eventually succumbed to old age. Despite testing positive for coronavirus on Christmas Day the virus only brought forward his demise by a few days/weeks.
My Mother has asked for a private cremation for family only."
