Alan Ault Obituary


We are sad to report the death of Alan Ault. He was a great advocate for local fencing and a truly genuine, good person, who remained calm in all circumstances and with all people.He was larger than life, both in stature and character, and very welcoming and encouraging. Of particular note was his kindness and support to many young fencers, fencing them with vigour and enthusiasm but without bashing them and making them look silly, and giving the benefit of his skill and experience.He was also active in the running of fencing, both in Chairing Sussex County Fencing and being on the committee for over 40 years, as well as contributing a great deal to South East Fencing and the Vets. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
