It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Joe passed away in hospital on Friday 12thAugust.
Joe had been poorly and in ill health over the last 3 years and, more recently, over the last 3 – 4 months in particular. He was admitted to hospital last week after suffering from breathing difficulties.
Joe was an extremely nice man and a ‘top bloke’ who was well liked and respected by everyone who knew him and played table tennis with/against him. He was a very competitive player in both his table tennis and also his golf which was his other passion. He was a great servant to our Club over the last 45 years and he will be sadly missed by all our members and all others who knew him, especially by myself and my wife Pat who were great friends with him and Pauline.
We send our condolences and sympathy to Pauline at this very sad time.
