IPSWICH Witches speedway promoter John Louis was today mourning the death of his brother Tony.
A former Suffolk cycle-speedway champion, Tony died after suffering a heart attack yesterday aged 60. He had recently undergone a major operation on his lungs.
Tony moved to Derby a number of years ago and died in Derby hospital. He is survived by widow Gill and daughters Suzanne and Jayne.
"Tony was a genuine sports person," said John, who visited his brother in hospital on Monday. "He rode cycle-speedway for Kesgrave Panthers and played football for Ipswich Schools and also for Waterside Works.
"Although he had no influence on my speedway career he came to watch big events in this country when either I or my son Chris were riding.
