During his childhood he moved to various places such as Dorton, Haddenham and Weston Turville before returning to Aylesbury.

His first marriage was in 1968 to Shirley Adams. They had two children, Simon and Karl, who writes the Back in Time column for this newspaper. They divorced in 1985 and Mr Vaughan married again in 1986 to Janice, who was his wife up until his death.

He worked for TRW United Carr until being made redundant in his 50s. He then worked for Royal Mail.
