    With sadness I have to pass on the sad news that our friend and passionate Bradford City fan Ronnie Brown passed away yesterday Debbie told me a few moments ago.
    He said when we spoke if anything happened he thought Debbie would get in touch and let me know the sad situation or his grandson McKenzie would visit the suites down at Valley Parade trying to locate Bronco.
    Quite a character was our Chris always put his slant onto posts and would argue is point in a reasonable manner never trying to wind other posters up.
    So in conclusion I'm glad I met you Chris you was a pleasure my friend great company.

    Chris North aka Ronnie Brown.
    R.I.P

    Sad news, Ronnie's quirky posts will be missed. I never met him but have shared recollections of times when we both played amateur football in the Bradford area.
    RIP Chris.

    Very sad news. A great contributor to this forum and someone we all considered a friend - even though we disagreed on virtually everything!!

    Extremely sad news.

    Just enjoyed his posts on here and his banter with me was enjoyable.

    Bantam Talk is a grest site but today it's lost one of its own and my heart going out to all his family.

    I know it's tough delivering bad news but thanks @Bronco@Bronco for doing it.

    RIP Ronnie! you will never be forgotten.

    Really sad. When we eventually go back to Valley Parade there will be a lot of people missing.

    Ron’s positivity is something I and I’m sure many others admire. Despite the problems he was facing he never once complained and still kept us all entertained with his unique, passionate and sometimes bizarre style of posting. Clearly had a lot of love for Bradford City and his friends on here. A funny, larger than life character who will be sadly missed.

    RIP.

    Sad news.
    No man is an island,
    Entire of itself.
    Each is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manor of thine own
    Or of thine friend's were.
    Each man's death diminishes me,
    For I am involved in mankind.
    Therefore, send not to know
    For whom the bell tolls,
    It tolls for thee.
    John Donne​
