Cavorting Cheetah known as Roderick Bromley

Roderick Bromley 5th January 1946 to 11th September 2020
On Friday, September 11th, 2020, after an heroic fight with cancer, Roderick Bromley, died peacefully at home in Norfolk. He was a loving husband, devoted father of three and adoring grandfather to five.
He lived a vibrant life, journeying across continents, flying over cities, roaming historic sights, relaxing on beautiful beaches and hopping from ice-cream parlour to ice-cream parlour. When he wasn't Captain Roderigo the airline pilot, flying passengers across Africa or Europe, he immersed himself in a range of pursuits. His love of bullfighting led him to learn Spanish which he spoke with an admirable accent. He had a lifelong love of art, music and history and in these areas he was exceptionally knowledgable. He took great pleasure in spending an afternoon listening to opera or a Mozart symphony pouring over classical literature.
Roderick's most memorable feature was the mischievous twinkle in his eye. With his devilish humour he was able to bring playfulness to almost any situation and ensured that so very often he was surrounded by joy and laughter. He could often be seen sporting a panama hat and aviator sunglasses whilst puffing on a cigar putting the world to rights. At his core, Roderick was a humble, generous, kind and loving man. He strove to be the best that he could be for his family whom he adored greatly. He was loved easily and rarely forgotten by anyone who met his acquaintance.

Such a shame; he'd been a regular PPRuNe poster until recently. I always liked his way with words and wry sense of humour.

Iím very sorry to hear your news. We will all miss him for his insightful, accurate and often very witty comments here in PPRuNe.

Although I never met him, or knew who he was, he was one of the people who made logging in to PPRuNe worthwhile.

Im sure all the people who read PPRuNe will, like me offer you our sympathy.

BSD.

A lovely tribute above. Totally unknown, perhaps, yet one whose writing here was invariably delightful. A piece, involving a black dog and an a ancient Land Rover, was surely based on a pub local to me. Pub closed, new management due, but vehicle remains on the local roads.

Do I detect Dornier 328?

I am a bit thick & slower on the uptake than most . Only j u s t got the pseudonym. Always read his posts because the name caught my eye. Those posts will be missed by me too. Great post BSD. Says it all.

t's strange the way certain prolific posters start posting less often and then hardly to the point that you forget about them.....until you hear such news.

He was always very humourous and appeared to be a man of learning, his eloquent prose and depth of knowledge in reference to many a subject always impressive. Another 'character' gone. RIP Sir!

BSD - I think your words echo the feelings of all of us who enjoyed cavortingcheetah's interesting and often irreverent posts.
I had wondered why he had retired from the forum. Now I know and am saddened that he no longer is able to provide his witty and usually sage observations.

I'm sorry he's gone..
