Ladies and Gentlemen
Further to my email informing you that Johnny Ruddock, well known York Motor Club member and successful Classic Rally, Mk1 Escort driver, sadly passed away peacefully in his sleep, at home, early on the morning of Thursday 19th November.
Johnny’s funeral is to take place on Thursday the 10th December, 1pm at York Crematorium. The cortege will leave The Easingwold Market place, Chapel of rest and drive via Tholthorpe (village green) and Tollerton (village green), then turn left in Tollerton to pause at Johnny’s house, Cross lanes Cottage at the Huby / Tollerton crossroad on the A19, then turning right to York. The Crematorium will be approached presumably via the A1237 York Ring Road, London Bridge and Sim Balk Lane.
Local people are planning to line the route in Tholthorpe and Tollerton and it is suggested that Johnny’s “York Motor Club” friends could show their respect outside the Crematorium, or the route to it, a turnout of competition cars would be appreciated.
