It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Richard (Dick) Smith – a lovely man who was a great asset to the Club and who very much appreciated his time with us.
I spoke to his wife, Marilyn, this morning to pass on our condolences. Apparently he had deteriorating kidneys which recently required some dialysis and that put too much of a strain on his heart.
Marilyn has sent me some details about Dick’s funeral to be held at 12 noon on Thursday 2nd April at St Peter’s Church, Selsey (PO20 0NA). She says that all are welcome whether you knew him well or just wanted to pay your respects and please feel free to wear light and cheerful colours as that was his wish.
Afterwards there will be a wake at 5pm at Selsey Golf Club, Golf Links Lane, Selsey (PO20 9DR). Again all are welcome. Ahead of the funeral Marily would welcome any reminiscences or anecdotes that you may have about him or any photos as she hopes to have a display of photos at the event. Perhaps you could channel those through me.
A sad day – he will be much missed.
