A life well lived – Mem Baybars

Many Club members joined family and friends to say goodbye to Mem at Chichester Crematorium last Friday.  The service, devised by Mem as his ‘Final Farewell Party’ was a touching and warm tribute, full of celebration of a life well lived.

 Through the tributes we heard of Mem’s escape from war torn Cyprus as a teenager hidden in a Red Cross ambulance, his subsequent life and studies in London and his successful career as a civil engineer, including his role as part of the winning team that secured the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics for London.

But it was the loving and much loved, generous and ever welcoming family man and friend that shone through.  He will be much missed.
