According to the press there is a terrible sadness in the Wilson family with Jocky’s death compounded by a family fall out. Apparently the family have asked Jocky’s elder brother to stay away following concerns over what he had written about the families upbringing. The family all still live in close proximity in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Jocky retired in 1995 and his last years shared with his Argentinean born wife were plagued by ill health. Apparently he hardly ever got out on his beloved racing bike and could barely look at a dart. He only once managed to complete the KCC sportive in 1998. Jocky slept most of the time, needing a machine to help him breathe and required 24-hour attention. He eventually died on March 24 two days after turning 62. :cry:

    Can't anyone die in peace, without some internet crank poring over every last minutiae of their life/death and even worse offering gushing respect/sympathy at their passing?

    Or not.
