He was a microbiologist and died, aged 44 years, on 5 October 1999 when he was travelling in the front carriage of the 8.06am Thames Trains Turbo train from Paddington to Bedwyn, Wiltshire, when it collided with the 6.03am First Great Western High Speed Train at Ladbroke Grove. At the subsequent inquiry it was stated that the cause of death was head injuries and smoke inhalation and that it was instantaneous. He was buried on 8 October 1999 in the London Borough of Havering.
