This by email from Skot aka Footlong:
Ant tragically fell and died in the Sgúrr Choinnich Mór, Nevis Range, Lochaber in Scotland.
Anyone who knew Ant will understand what an amazing individual he was. For my part I first knew him as XL1 at Churchill Express but over time he became one of my closest friends and someone that I am exceptionally happy I got to spend time with. It is rare to meet someone so open hearted and pleasant, and it is terribly sad that he is now not with us.
Ant’s wife, Cat, has let me know that if anyone would like to come and celebrate his life they would be very welcome. This is happening at 10.15, Saturday 17th January at Randall’s Park Crematorium, Leatherhead, KT22 0AG.
Ant felt strongly against giving bought flowers for environmental reasons, and so in respect for his views there will be no floral arrangements. Donations in lieu to Lochaber Mountain Rescue may be sent to FW Chitty’s of Weybridge at 5 Church Street, Weybridge, Surrey KT13 8DE 01932 842220.
If anyone would like any more information then you can get in touch with me.
