Death of an ex-Club member

I am afraid I have to report the death of Jack Sanday who passed away over the weekend after a long illness. Jack had been a long standing member of the Club through the heydays of the Club in the 70,s, 80,s and 90,s. He was an accomplished sailor and the builder of numerous boats of all shapes and sizes, from Marbleheads to the giant three masted schooner “Winston Chuchill”
He became ill several years ago but had had periods of remission untill the illness got on top of him. He had spent the last several months in a Hospice where he was said to have been happy, still continuing to make models to occupy his time, so much so that it was only in the last couple of months past that he staged an exhibition of his work at the Hospice, giving all proceeds for the benefit of the Hospice.
Jack is to be cremated, the service being held at the North East Surrey Crematorium in Lower Morden Lane at 2pm on Wednesday the 13th of May. I shall be attending, as well as some other members of the Club, to pay our last respects. The family have requested “no flowers” but donations to the Hospice where Jack died will be welcomed. I intend to draw a modest cheque on Club funds in favour of the Hospice in memory of the long service that Jack gave to the Club
