Postby The Cub » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:49 pm

Hi All....

It is with regret I have to inform you that this morning at around 11.15 Alistair 'The Fox' Findlay passed away in his sleep. He had loved ones around him at all times over the last 3 weeks and throughout never lost his sense of humour.

Im sorry this message is so short guys but I truly do not know what to say at this time. I know a lot of you have fond memories with him so I just wanted to let you know.

I will post details of whats happening and when so you can pay your last respects. Many thanks for all your kind wishes on the other posts he loved hearing your thoughts and well wishes.

So from the Family and Foxy...Thank You all.

Bye Dad love you loads sweet dream xxxxx

Truly sorry to hear this. He was a great enthusiast for the game of poker, and had a great influence on it, particularly in the Blackpool area. Never without a smile and a great story. He will be sadly missed. RIP Al.

So very sorry for your loss Chris and family.

AWOP was the very first poker forum I posted on. We had very fond memories of Al at Blackpool and around the region during the Megastack days.

RIP Foxy, you will live forever in our thoughs. Kev and Joo x.

So so sorry for your loss Chris, Ally and family. Sending my love to you all.

Such a lovely man who helped me a lot in the poker world and keeping an eye on me when I was fighting ' C ' . Even offered to buy my car when I was selling it in case I couldn't make the price I wanted. He didn't have to in the end.....but Al 'cared'

The poker world was AWOP and Al to me back in the day.

RIP Alistair....always remembered ....Sue aka Tatty Teddy x

Very sad news. Alistair was a great fella. He loved the game of poker going back years. AWOP was the first poker site that I read and posted on. I have made many friends from AWOP. Thanks to Alistair keeping us informed of what's going on in the Poker World.

Chris, Ally and family, please accept my sincere condolences. Al made a difference to the poker world and was ahead of his time in his innovation.

I will remember fondly the early days of AWOP and his commitment to help players into the bigger comps, I will remember the fun we all had at live events, his passion for the game and his sense of fun.

RIP The Fox x

So sad even though I never met him. He seemed like a poker soul mate and genuine nice guy. Shocked because me any my partner are going through that stage where people keep dying or suffering ill health. A reminder of how fleeting life is and to make the most of it. My condolences from down south. He was this forum.
I'm an opinionated old tosser and proud of it.

In shock at hearing this sad news.

Personally I have known Ali for many years and he has always been a true gentleman and truly nice guy.
