It’s my sad and solemn duty to report to readers of the blog that local lad and friend to many regulars on this blog, Roger Mosedale sadly passed away in St. Giles hospice in Goscote on Tuesday, 19th July 2016.
Roger’s great friend Colin Corbett informed me of his condition on Monday, but I was unsure whether to share it here. Sadly, the following day, Roger slipped away.
Colin Worte to me a few hours ago:
I sent you a message about Roger Mosedale – Monday 18th July – very poorly in Goscote – St Giles – Sad to say He passed away the following day – Tuesday.
I hope you can let the people of Brownhills, Walsall Wood & Aldridge know as many knew him.
I send all my best and sincere thoughts to his family and friends.
I’ve lost a great and close friend.
I enclose a Picture of Roger ( 1961) plus a picture of the Group as well ( 1961 ) The Sundowners.
Colin Corbett ( Drummer )
I know what cherished memories many here have of Roger and the local music scene he was such a part of. Roger commented a lot on the history of Friezland Lane Club and I know he had great memories of both that institution and of playing in The Sundowners.
My sincere condolences to Roger’s family, friends and all who knew and remembered him. Running the blog as I do you become all too aware of time’s arrow and at instances like this the sadness is particularly acute.
Thank you to Colin for letting us know. On behalf of all blog readers, my deepest sympathies, and thank you.
