It is with great sadness that I have just been advised of the recent passing of Ron.
Ron worked tirelessly for Bar Billiards over many years and, along with Eileen, probably collected more funds into AEBBA coffers than anyone else. We remain immensely grateful to him for his amazing commitment to our game and our organisation and we shall always remember him with great fondness.
I will post funeral details here as soon as I get them.
Such sad news! A tireless worker for AEBBA and the Reading events used to rely on Ron & Eileen trying to get £3 out of AEBBA players, many begrudgingly! They used to run the raffles as well and as AEBBA Treasurer, I found them meticulous in their accounting for prizes and income.
My thoughts are with Eileen and family and friends.
Ron in the bar at the Normandie several years ago, very late on an unforgettable evening!
