Bryan Ansell has passed away.


I just heard that Bryan passed away this morning. So many stories to tell and now gone like the fleeting mists of time. So sad. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side. RIP Bryan. I'll raise a glass for you shortly. He joins his father, Cliff, who passed in 2019.

The tribute from Diane's Facebook age.

A poor pic of me, Bryan and Tony at BOYL a few years back. Bryan and the family made me feel so welcome that my usual anxiety issues could disappear for the weekend.

I'm sure there will be many tributes to him and I'll post links when I find them. 

RIP Bryan.

Very sorry to hear this.
Thoughts with his family and those who knew him. Was just the name at the top of staff lists on White Dwarf during the late 80s/90s, but have read and greatly enjoyed the interviews Brian gave in more recent years on Citadel/GW.

Thanks for the post - those of us not on 'media' sites appreciate the posts, not only sad news like this which we would otherwise not hear, but also work put in during the year.
Thanks & best wishes for '24.

I never meet personally, just exchanged some emails with him a few years ago (That I stored printed like a little treasure) and he seemed like good person.
Sad news, clock is over us

I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Bryan Ansell. His contributions to the gaming industry are truly remarkable, and he will be remembered fondly by many.
