It is with so much sadness I report that Ken Raper, Technical Superintendant, RFA(Retd), member 0021, Crossed the Bar on Saturday 3rd August 2019 aged 86, after a short illness.

Ken's Funeral will take place on Thursday 15th August 2019 at Sunderland Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). Old shipmates and colleagues will be very welcome to attend and also to join the family for refreshments afterwards

The funeral arrangements are being made by Peter Dodd, Funeral Directors (HERE for their website and HERE for a Map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to daughters Sue and Sharon and also his grandchildren. His wife Margaret pre-deceased him.

If you have any remembrances of Ken please email it to me at captain.pat@rfa-association.org.uk and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Ken for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
