The NFRN regrets to announce the death of Watford newsagent Himanshu Patel.

Mr Patel, of Kays Newsagent in St Albans Road, passed away yesterday morning (April 15) after being taken to hospital on Easter Monday.

The 51 year old father of two had run the shop for more than 10 years and had joined the NFRN around the same time. He was a member of the NFRN’s London district and  Watford branch.

Watford President Raju Patel said: “It is desperately sad.  I only spoke to him five days ago to see how he was getting on. He was such a lively, bubbly man.”

Mr Patel is survived by his wife, his father and twin boys who are believed to be in their early teens.

National President Stuart Reddish added: “Our thoughts and sympathies are with his wife and family. The NFRN will do everything we can to help and support them through this immensely difficult period.”

Mr Patel’s wife and father were also taken to hospital earlier this week but have since been discharged.
