    RIP - Very Sad News (BennyBoyRs)

    I received the devastating news that one of my best QPR friends and someone who was a regular on this site, Ben Harrington has died on holiday. (bennyboyr''s). I spent many away days with him and will never forget the laughs we had. The day we made up the Buzsacky song was a great day plus the matchdays up in the qblock> More than that he was a honest, caring person who would say what he felt. Obviously its too early regards funeral arrangements but i will keep people posted.

    He will be missed by friends and family. Too young to pass away.

    RIP

    I was thinking about Ben today, I’ve no idea why but this one story popped into my head. As I said previously in this thread, I knew him outside of QPR as well; he was an IT salesman and I wrote and maintained the computer programme that his company used for a number of years and I used to go in to see them on a very regular basis. A group of us generally went out for a pint or two at lunchtime, often on the short walk we’d break off from the others and discuss the latest “going-ons” at QPR, he was always better informed than me. I particularly remember his excitement when this forum was formed and his excitement in showing it to me, you guys all gave him a lot of pleasure. On this particular occasion I was on my way up to the bar and he stopped me and said ”No mate, you’re always at the bar, I’ll get these and then make one of those spongers get the next round”. That, to me, was typical Ben. To call him a thoroughly decent bloke is far too understated but I don’t know a better word, but as well as being great company for a lads night out, he was also thoughtful, kind and above all else generous. It is still dawning on me how much I miss him. What those who were closer to him are going through I cannot begin to guess, there is scant comfort in the knowledge that we were lucky to know him. RIP mate.

    tragic news and in shock to hear of him passing away.Met Ben a few years ago and the man was full of life.Enjoyed his company and football banter.He was a true QPR fan and will be sadly missed by all that knew him.Rest In Peace BEN.

    Seen loads of these accidents out there.Have to be so careful on bikes there.Don't ride there anymore but use the motorbike taxi's.

    Too many people get caught up in the holiday spirit and get too carefree.
