It is with regret that Torbay Brass Band announce the passing of Douglas J. Mills or Dougie s he was known to so many. He could not read a note of music or play an instrument, but Dougie was always at rehearsals and any gigs the band was involved in. The commitment he gave was better than many players. A regular at the band contests in the South West, his high spot of the year was his annual pilgrimage to the Bugle contest which he attended for many years. Torbay Bras Band was his life and his family and he will be sorely missed by everyone.
