Written by Stats   

Kingston AC & Polytechnic Harriers,are extremely sad to have to report the death of former member,Joe,the twin brother of current MD and CC stalwart,Ant Budarkiewicz.

In the 1970s,both Joe and Ant,alongside David Beaver,Andrew Charman and Steve Ray,formed a formidable Poly Under 17 and U20 CC squad,which performed successfully in County,Area and National Championships.

Joe and his family,who have lived in Canada for many years,were returning to Edmonton,Alberta from a trip to Vancouver BC,when the car in which they were travelling was in collision with another vehicle. Two of Joe's three sons also died with him,whilst his wife and other twin son remain in hospital.

The Club sends their deepest sympathy to Ant and to his parents.
