Carl TIGHE Carl Tighe passed away on 8 May 2020, aged 70 years. He will be remembered with 'bucketloads' of love by his wife Madeleine, his stepson Luke, his four brothers and two sisters. He was a true Renaissance man, artistic, knowledgeable, wise, athletic, social and caring. He will be greatly missed but his legacy lives on in the influence he made upon the world as a writer, a teacher, a mentor, a brother and friend.

Carl was always warm, kind and full of fun. He was charming, erudite and delightful company, but it was the way he observed the world around him and those that peopled his life, the way he held space around whatever he was giving his attention to, that made him such wonderful company and, no doubt, such an important political commentator. His work on creative writing is encouraging and genuinely helpful and his novels reveal more of his exciting imagination and passion for life. I was privileged to have met him through my wonderful partner, Carl's friend and colleague the writer and editor, Nigel Jenkins. After Nigel died, Carl and his lovely wife Madeleine took it upon themselves to visit me and spend time with me, I will never forget that kindness and the joy it brought me.

Carl was truly one of the 'good' guys. His achievements were great as was his influence. Our many happy times together with Madeleine and Carl in Rhodes leave us with precious memories to keep in our hearts forever. Maggie and Ikuo
