Default Mr Beastie (Ady) - 31st December 2016, 01:41 PM

It is with great sadness that we report that Mr Beastie, known to many as Ady, passed away this morning after a long and well-documented battle with cancer. Ady was a well-loved member of the MINI community from the early days and was a friendly face at many events alongside his lovely wife, Chrissie.

I'm sure others will post memories here of their time spent with Ady and Chrissie.

You can also read their blog here, which has captured many of their adventures together and more recently has given a stark yet always positive insight into their battles with the Big C.

Thoughts go out to Chrissie and their family and friends at this difficult time.

Kev

Ady was a wonderful guy, always happy and cheerful despite his battle. There have been some brilliant times and laughs over the years, but I'll never forget the trip a few of us had to the Paris Motorshow in 2006, to see the launch of the R56, it was such a good weekend spent with great friends.

Ady will be greatly missed, thinking of Chrissie and their family at such a difficult time, such sad news

If anybody would like to come and pay their respects and celebrate the life of Ady, his funeral will be on Monday 23rd January 2017 at 3:15pm. Further details below:


We thank you all for your kind words and support, and welcome you to join us in celebrating the life of Adrian Ainsworth at Worcester Crematorium on Monday 23rd January 2017 at 3.15pm, and/or from 4pm at The Barn Owl in Worcester.

We politely request that instead of flowers, instead a charitable donation made to the Malvern Hills Conservators to go towards the provision of an oak Gate in his memory. We have a Just Giving page if you wish to donate or a collection will be made available on the day.
www.justgiving.com/Adrian-Ainsworth

Dress code will be smart (as he would have wished), with a splash of red and your best watch

Please could all Minis park together.


Worcester Crematorium, Tintern Ave, Worcs, WR3 8HA
The Barn Owl, Berkeley Court, Berkeley Way, Worcs, WR4 9UP
