    Default T J Hughes - how died?

    Just doing some research on T J Hughes who died age 43 and it said that he died tragically - anyone know how he died. I know he thought he had an incurable disease but I understood he was mistaken. Did he turn out to be right after all or did he die some other way.
    Any help much appreciated.
    Thanks
    Julie

    not a lot of info about is there?
    up to now I've found this snippet about his daughter

    Shirley Hughes - Alfie, Dogger & Friends
    Saturday, May 17, 2003 - Monday, August 25, 2003

    Shirley Hughes is best-loved for the children's book favourites, Alfie and Dogger. This wonderful illustrator and author was the daughter of Liverpool store owner TJ Hughes and was a regular visitor to Walker Art Gallery, where she found the paintings inspirational. Born and brought up in West Kirby, she studied at Liverpool School of Art and then at the Ruskin School, Oxford. This exhibition includes sketchbooks, drawings and paintings, and coincides with the release of her autobiography, 'A Life Drawing'.

    I'll keep looking, might get lucky

    All I could find was the Owen Owen official history which said that he died in tragic circumstances aged 43.

    You could send for his death certificate from the General Records Office.

    thanks for that. I don't desperately need to know - it was for a walk I was doing which has passed now. I just wondered how he died so young.
