Sad news of the passing of Richard Gwynn

The Committee has learned of the very sad news that Richard Gwynn died yesterday morning. Having been in intensive care for the last week, he passed away peacefully with his family present.

There was no more loyal Buccaneer than ‘The Hack’, who played for the club for almost 40 years and managed many enjoyable fixtures over that time. He had been a Vice President since 2004.

Richard did more than anyone to welcome new members, foster a positive club spirit and he never missed a club dinner (or House match). For many years he organised our Christmas party at The Grande Marque. He was also a keen golfer and managed several Buccaneers Golfing Society tours with typical enthusiasm.

The thoughts and prayers of all Buccaneers are with Susan and his family and funeral arrangements will be circulated in due course. For correspondence, Susan can be reached at 47 Church Road, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 1UA.
