Very sad.

I used to get pissed at the Willie Thorne Snooker Club in my hometown as a nipper.

That is my Willie Thorne story.

RIP.

He was on Pointless Celebrities not too long ago, wasn't he?

So sad. Gambling was the monkey on his back. He was amazingly open about it. A really nice man, such a shame.

66 is no age. Given that he has been bald since before snooker was on the telly I assumed he would have been much older.

RIP Willie Thorne, I've enjoyed your company through many a fine match

Sad news, RIP, Willie.

I'd never realised he was my age, I'd somehow always thought of him as older.

Goodbye Willie Thorne,

Although I never knew you at all,

Your head reflecting from The Crucible,

Shone out and touched us all.

Willie always reminded me of Hank in Larry Sanders.

#9. Wicked sod.

Thank God I was not the only one thinking that.

or at least that he had the grace to hold himself, while those around him crawled

Me too. From the young girl in the 22nd row.
