Former Reading 107 presenter Tim Grundy has died at the age of 50.

Father-of-two Mr Grundy, son of infamous Sex Pistols interviewer Bill Grundy, helped set up the Reading radio station with his brother Tony – the managing director – in October 2002.

He presented the breakfast show for three years before handing over the reigns to Ben Rice.

He had two children and was chairman of The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.

I new Tim when I did the angling feature on Piccadilly Radio.
We lost touch, but meet up again at a pub in Chinley.
I left the UK in 2000, and set up a horse ranch outside Fort Worth in Texas.
We kept in touch by phone and email over the years, including a very long and funny conversation about us both having heart attacks.
It is with great sadness to learn of his passing.

My Mum (Madscouser-Crawley) was a Grundy-ett and had met Tim and Fiona quite a few times. I never actually got to meet Tim but I had the opportunity to chat and thank him on the phone. He had kindly sponsered me on a parachute jump for a local charity, What a Sport!. He was a great guy with a great personality. There will be a large void that can now only be filled with memories. My thoughts are with Fiona and their families at this time of grief. May his memories live on and bring them comfort. Jayne

Tim and Fi were regulars in The Queens Bollington in 1999. Fi worked for the same airline as myself. He knocked, furiously on my door the day before the champions league final of Man Utd vs Bayern Munich. 'Nick Nick I have tickets for the Champions league final in Barcelona' he announced excitedly, 'but I have no means of getting there, can you help me out?
We were transporting the fans and I asked a fellow Captain if he would carry Tim on the spare seat in the flight deck. (this was prior to 9/11)He obliged of course. He remarked on his return that it was one of the most extraordinary days of his life. Life has also lost an extraordinary man. Fi, we are thinking of you.

So sorry to hear the sad news, although we lost touch for a number of years you will always be remembered for your contribution in running back from France with a bottle of Beaujolais on our backs. In doing so we raised £25,000 (a lot of money in 1986) and bought a heart scanner for Pendlebury Childrens Hospital. You were a good mate, rest in peace.

Tim, you and the breakfast team at Reading 107fm made my mornings brighter as I travelled from Earley to Woking (until the signal dropped out that is!)..I moved away for a while, and when I returned, you and Ben Rice were no longer there, and I really missed that 'spark'. Now, with this sad sad news, I know that there will never be a chance to hear you again. Be at peace. My sincere condolences to your family.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tims’ Twos Country programmes. He always seemed so personable, natural and easy going. Through Twos Country, my Mother, Edith (MadScouser) became a huge fan of Tim. She had the opportunity to contact and also meet him, and over time, they became close friends. He definitely wasn’t a typical “celebrity” type - I guess not many other celebrities would give much to their fans, but Tim was always available for chats, and gave so much time to those who appreciated his work, whether it was broadcasting, or the charity work he did to help those in need. Regrettably, I never got to meet Tim, but I know he will be sorely missed by everyone who both knew him personally and those of us who are fans of his broadcasting career. RIP Tim - It wasn't your time to go... - Love Helen & Darren Paine Xxx

I am saddened to hear the tragic news.

My first memory of Tim was my first day in commercial radio, turning up in the Manchester greyness on my first morning working at Piccadilly Radio and listening to what what became one of my favourite breakfast shows. You'll remember 'Billy Bradshaw's Brain Buster' and who could forget John Seville in 'the eye in the sky' at 1500 feet! Along with many other friends at Piccadilly you inspired my career in radio.

An inspiration to many and entertainer to even more.

A privilage to have known you and worked with you.

Safe journey Tim.

Oh my word - just head this and totally shocked - I ran the Two's Country website years back and we got Tim in touch with us to give info etc. Such a sad loss at an early age.

Really sad news. I have known his brother Tony since I was about 14 and I got to meet Tim a few times.

Such an asset to the radio industry and someone who really knew how to communicate and make listeners really feel part of the show.

I remember meeting him to discuss a demo tape I had sent him back in 2002. The advice he gave was priceless and I use some of the advice given to me to help train young people in broadcasting today.

He'll be very much missed by all. Thoughts to Tony and the rest of the family.

Many of the messages here show how much Tim will be missed as a great broadcaster - but of course he was much more than that.

His work with the Children's Charity shows - as many have also said - he genuinely cared for people.

Tim took on young graduates into broadcasting - and showed them more than the nuts and bolts of what needed to be done - but the passion behind it.

He also employed older broadcasters - dissaffected or disillusioned from previously employers - and gave them a new sense of joy and excitement for working in radio. He gave them a chance to spread their wings again and remember why they joined the industry in the first place.

As Community Manager of Reading 107 in it's early years - Tim "gave" me and the team the airwaves for projects like "Macmillan Cancer's Bring a £ to work", "Tsunami Appeal Radio Aid Day" and coverage of "Ufton Nervet" - coverage no-one else would.

He did that - not to win awards or to make outstanding radio - he did that because he believed he could use his medium to help those in need. I'm not sure there's many others in radio who could or would do that today.

So as we mourn a great presenter and friend - either personally or through the airwaves... I think we should all feel sense of happiness to remember a man who was able to benefit the lives of others.

RIP Tim - we'll also miss your Tigger impressions old boy.

What dreadful news. Two days ago, I retrieved from the garage, four videos of his brilliant series' Two's Country, to watch again and show to our son. We hadn't watched them for many years, but they come into the "timeless" category. Tim always came across as a very friendly and humorous man, which made his programmes even more entertaining and easy to watch, so how sad were we to discover that he had died, and probably on the same day as we relocated ourselves with his programmes. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife and family. Cheryl and Dave Oliver.

I've only just got back to my PC after hearing the news via a phone call from Warren Lee to my wife on Monday.
I first met Tim when setting up the transmission system for Reading 107 with Tony and we had many conversations on and off air.
I recall one particular morning when I was monitoring transmission quality at Tilehurst and he said in his show that there were three words in the English language for which there were no rhymes.
I jotted down a 6-line poem with joke rhymes for each and read it over the phone to Tim Rice. Within seconds Tim Grundy read it on air and agreed he'd met his match for once.
No you didn't Tim, and you never will!
Sadly missed by all of us here at transplan UK.

Tim was the consumate professional. He had a lovely manner both on the radio and TV. I had the pleasure of working with him at Piccadilly Radio / Key 103. I greatly enjoyed the TV show "Two's Country" and recorded several episodes for my Dad before he had Sky TV. I remember we watched them all one afternoon and that night we went for a pint to "The Miners" in Poynton and Tim was in there. A remarkable coincidence and we enjoyed a lovely evening with him. I also enjoyed a guided tour of the Children's Adventure Farm with him. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about everything that he did and had a remarkable ability to remember names and dates etc. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him in Manchester and Reading.

My Dearest Friend. We are all still so very numb with the shock of you passing. Time spent with you and Fi at the Bothy were magical. Summer high days and roaring log fires in the winter. Sunday afternoons that occasionally, and suprisingly (!), lead to a Monday morning migraine....(Sorry Ben!!) Life was for living Tim and we sure did live it. We have so many happy, crazy, beautiful memories. The game of badminton that seperated the garden gnome from his head...Your decision to see how a hose pipe worked indoors....! Seeing the painfull, albeit hilarious results, of your sunbed session, on Boxing Day, just gone...HAPPY HAPPY DAYS. With massive love and sympathy to Fi, we will miss you Grundy.

We were totally saddened to hear the news. Tim and I worked together at Piccadilly Radio in the '80's but our best times were playing football for the Piccadilly Attackers, raising money for charity. Tim was a great presenter, and a hugely likable guy. He'll be missed and our thoughts are with his family today.

Tim was the reason I managed somehow to get my voice on the radio. I sent my demo tape in to Reading 107fm and apparently Tim's first words were 'he'll never make it'. Well, I kept pestering Tim and finally I became his sidekick on Reading 107 and they was the best years of my working life.

We had fun making people laugh but most of all we made ourselves laugh every morning. I am saddened that I hadn't seen Tim for some time as I owe him so much. As many people have mentioned, Tim was like a father figure and was so positive that he got the best out of you. Unlike most radio stations now, he didn't suppress creativity, he embraced it and the first two years of Reading 107 where the most fun any young jock could have.

Tim, I'll really miss you mate, you meant a lot to me and were a true friend. You cared about people and had the gift of great conversation, brilliant story telling and the ability to make people laugh.

We shared many a morning in stitches and that is how I will remember you. So sorry Fi and Tony, my thoughts are with you.

You are/were a legend...simple

Tim Grundy was the driving force and one of the founders of The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust. In 1985 he initiated, and was at the forefront of, a fundraising appeal which resulted in the charity’s base in Millington being purchased outright. Tim had a vision of a centre which provided holidays for children living in Children’s Homes, confident that these breaks were essential to provide these children with fun, friendship and hope.

We are all extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Tim, he meant so much to us all. He had a determination and drive that one seldom comes across, working tirelessly to create a haven for children in desperate need. He really was an inspiration to everyone who met him, and we’re all so honoured to have known him. Thanks to Tim, tens of thousands of children have been given life-changing opportunities here at The Adventure Farm. He will leave such a huge gap, and will always be remembered as the man who made all of this possible. Without him we simply wouldn’t exist.

Like many of the people who were lucky to have known Tim I'd like to say what a real lovley bloke he was.
If it was not for Tim's help I would never be in the job I love, at a Radio station that I love.
He was fantastic to those of us who wanted to get into Radio.
I now present the brekky show on Manchester's Piccaddilly Magic 1152- not bad for a kid from Wythenshawe with help from a talented broadaster and really nice man.Thanks Timbo RIP

What a shock to hear the sad news about Tim.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Tim was such a lovely person - I remember him as always smiling, always friendly and fun, and he always had time to listen and help. I worked with Tim for around two years at Reading 107FM, I was a young and inexperienced journalist and he was a very talented and experienced broadcaster who I learned so much from. Tim really did have a heart of gold, and cared so much about those around him, especially his family. He also cared passionately about radio and about Reading 107. My love to Fi and Tony, and the rest of the family xx

This time last week Tim Grundy was basking under an African sun with his beautiful wife, Fiona. On Thursday he returned and popped into his favourite Wilmslow watering hole to tell drinking chums of his holiday adventure. It's both tragic and shocking that 72 hours later he was snatched away in a cruel and bitter twist of fate - his body overcome by sudden organ failure.

Tim will be fondly remembered by all at the King Billy as a man of wit, wisdom and generosity of spirit. His verve and tenacity were unbounded ... as was his love for Fiona. Her heartache can only be imagined at this time. The two of them were inseparable.

Right now there are no words of comfort to relieve her pain and that of his entire family - but from the saddened regulars at the King Billy a wave of warmth and sympathy goes out to them in these dark days.

And together from the bar we raise a glass to Tim - a much loved husband, father, broadcaster, charity founder, friend and drinking buddy.

Cheers, old boy ... and rest in peace.

Tim, I'm going to miss you mate. I learnt a lot from you that has stood me in good stead since.

Love to Fi and the family.

Tim was a good mate at school, but life itself parted us , i never forgot what a good kid he was.
He went on to do many good things and brought joy to many and for that we should be both be proud of what he achived and that we knew of a great man.
I use the the word "great" in the contents that a man such as Tim can Stand of the gates of his maker standing tall , with pride.
Rest in peace, Tim, Good Night , God Blease You

I remember when Tim used to live on Dickens Lane in Poynton. I used to see him leaving his house on my way to school. He was a local celebrity and DJ on Piccadilly Radio.
That was 24 years ago, which doesnt feel that long ago. I am shocked and saddened that Tim's gone particularly for his sons.
Many people have good memories of your father. RIP TIM.

I worked with Tim @ Piccadilly Radio and Key 103 in Manchester. When I was 14 he let me `sit-in` on his Breakfast Show and I eventually began working there full-time. He was very encouraging when I started presenting my own show on the station and I last spoke to him around 5 years ago. He attended a `Reunion Party` for the radio station in Manchester I organised in 2000 and had a great night. He loved Manchester and radio and was a very intelligent and strong character. He worked with (and helped) people who were starting out in the business including Chris Evans, Pete Mitchell, Terry Christian and many others.
He will be sadly missed and we hope some sort of memorial could be arranged for his friends and collegues to attend in Manchester

As a 14 year old radio buff, I begged my dad to put an FM arial on the roof so I could pick up Piccadilly Radio. Stu Allan was the main reason, but Tim Grundy was a real draw too. Not even heard the guy's name for years, but I have very fond memories of listening to him.

Tim Grundy was one of the reasons i wanted to become a radio presenter, I once won a Tim Grundy ugly mug on his piccadilly radio breakfast show, I am currently presenting a show on community radio station and i can only dream of becoming as successful as Tim, A great loss to broadcasting and my heart goes out to his friends and family. god rest in peace Tim

Tim was a lovely and warm presenter. His Two's Country series for Discovery was excellent. My thoughts go to Tim's family. Tim was a man that could cheer you up on a rainy day.

I first met Tim through his brother Tony and we got on well immediately. We shared a passion for radio and spent many hours together, working and playing hard. Late nights in the studio and long journeys on the motorway, travelling up to Manchester. Tim was kind and generous, a true gentleman and I am proud that he was my friend. His passing is a great loss, which will be felt by all who knew him, but especially by Tony, Fi and the rest of the family. My thoughts are with you all. "Only the good die young" God bless Tim.

Tim was a good bloke and a good friend. Best memory? When he led the Piccadilly Radio charity football team out at Altrincham against a team featuring George Best. Tim said he marked Besty out of the game...

Me just a mere radio fan. Tim, a giant of a presenter at Piccadilly. We lose another great guy. Too many good jocks going recently. Tim was certainly one of them.... RIP forever.

What a shock to hear the sad news today. Tim was instrumental in my career, producing my first demo tape whilst at Piccadilly Radio and letting me sit in at Pebble Mill watching how he coped with shared talkback & live TV- witnessing his diverse talents will always make me proud to have known him.
