ED’s death news was announced by his family through his son John Rooksby.
Together with Mum (Christine) and David – we are sorry to announce that Ed Rooksby passed away last weekend at his home in York. He last spoke with Mum on Friday; John posted on Facebook.
Reacting to his death, Luke Cooper wrote on Facebook – Shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Ed Rooksby. A really lovely, truly good guy, and a great mind. I first met him at an academic panel, many years ago when I nervously gave my first ever paper. He was predictably reassuring and supportive.
He was 45 with no prior health conditions. Every death from his horrible affair is a tragedy, but Christ, 45 and with so much more to give this world. RIP Ed, you will be terribly missed.
