I have some sad news to announce. Lofty Waterman, who often posted on these pages sadly passed away on July 19 at the age of 72. He had suffered a stroke the week before. Lofty used to be a second and also drove some wrestlers around the country. Anyone who knew him will know that he was a massive fan of the golden age of British wrestling. It seemed that any chat with Lofty wouldn't take too long to get around to mentioning Kendo Nagasaki. Even his FB profile was a photo of Lofty with Peter Thornley, aka Kendo. He leaves behind a widow, two loving daughters and a son.. The photo shows him with Kendo and his daughter Lorraine. Perhaps we should all watch a Kendo match in honour of Lofty and imagine him cheering his favourite wrestler onto another victory.
