Obituary - Roger Johnson
5 June 2002

We have just learned the very sad news of the sudden death of vet, Roger Johnson.

Roger and his wife Dinah, also a vet, have become very respected members of the core horse driving trials event team around the country, giving up hours of their time, totally voluntarily, to help provide veterinary cover at many events. As well as acting as treating vets at our events, Roger and Dinah were also on the FEI Veterinary Panel.

Roger's quiet and professional manner have earned him tremendous respect on the circuit and he will be greatly missed by everyone.

Understandably, Dinah does not feel able to continue in a sport which she and Roger have always enjoyed together and we take this opportunity to thank Dinah for the enormous amount that she and Roger have done for horse driving trials over the years, and to send her our deepest sympathy.

Roger's funeral is private for family only. There is to be a Service of Thanksgiving at 2pm on Friday 14 June at St Paul's Church, The Common, Chipperfield, Hertfordshire.
