Will Smith

It is with great sadness and sense of loss that we have to report, our founding member, Will Smith, died whilst exploring a dry section of Aber Las Slate Mine on Saturday the 23/08/2014.

We, the UKMC, are not surprised at the level of support from the diving community, Will Smith was a one off, a man that loved and gave all to his sport.

Words from us cannot encompass all that he meant to the different people whose lives he touched. We will continue the good work started by Will and firmly build on his legacy.

He was a great buddy to all he dived with and a best friend to all that he didn’t.

Our hearts and condolences go out to the three girls in his life, Kelly, Mia and Demi and to his close family and friends.
