funeral of amca president terry king

The funeral of Terry King, president of the Amateur Motor Cycle Association, took place yesterday (12 December).

Born in 1947 and originally from Wombourn, near Wolverhampton, Terry died at home on Friday 23 November after a hard-fought battle against cancer.

Terry held many roles within the AMCA – one of the oldest off-road motorcycle governing bodies in the world – and was a keen founder member of the Oakham club. He was an enthusiastic off-roader himself, competing in both solo and sidecar AMCA events for more than 30 years. Terry became AMCA chairman in 2002.

Over his 35-year association with the AMCA he never missed a single committee meeting, annual meeting, executive committee meeting, Motocross Committee meeting or directors’ meeting.

Terry, 71, had his own furniture business and served on Rutland County Council for 18 years, becoming leader before stepping down owing to ill health in January 2017.

Terry leaves a loving wife, Linda.
