Very sad to hear, via his son Aidan on another forum, that Duncan Revie has died. Duncan is the son of Don & Elsie Revie.

Sad news, thoughts with the family at this time.
When you retire, you switch bosses - from the one that hired you, to the one that married you.

Very sad to read this I met Duncan at the unveiling of the Dons statue & found him a extremely pleasant man. I started there's only 1 Don Revie chant for which he came over & thanked me & shook my hand.

Copied announcement from Aidan Revie:

It is with a sadness that I am currently unable to understand, or articulate, that I need to inform you of the death of my father, Duncan Revie, who died peacefully in London on Sunday 25thSeptember with his family around him. He fought a short yet ferocious battle against a horrible disease that touches all of us, yet against the odds scrapped for every single solitary inch before finally being overcome by it. He may not have ultimately won, but the opposition sure as hell knew it had been in a fight.

Many of you have met him at some point, so knew him to be the confident, evanescent, caring, loving man that he was. If it was within his power to do something for someone else, he would do it without question. He was the eternal optimist, calm in a crisis and always ready to deliver sage life advice when needed. Family and friends were everything to him and it is hard to imagine how we carry on without him. However, I am glad for the life that came before, as he was one of very few people who truly, truly lived. I don’t think he would have changed a minute of it.

The club have kindly agreed to hold a minutes applause before the match tomorrow, which the family would like to thank them for.

If you are at the match tomorrow I would ask you to sing your hearts out for him, and in any scenario please raise a glass to him this evening.

I am going to leave you with some words of his I found in an interview while I was trawling the net this week –

‘I’m still a Leeds United fan. Once Leeds, always Leeds, - you can’t get away from it! Although the great times of the late 60’s and early 70’s have not yet been repeated, Leeds fans, who incidentally ARE the best in the world, never give up hope that we will be back at the top of the mountain sooner rather than later. As the song goes ‘at least until the world stops turning round’

MOT
