It is with great sadness I have to inform you that Dennis Hunter passed away on 29th August.
His funeral service is on Wednesday 19th September at the larger west chapel, Southend Crematorium, Sutton Road starting at 12noon. There is also a celebration of his life, that will be held immediately after the funeral service at St Clements Court West ( ground floor lobby ), Broadway West, Leigh on Sea SS9 2BW. We would welcome all Thorpe Bay Yacht Club current & past senior members that new him. Can you mention his funeral service to as many of the senior members as possible – thanks.
For those of you who did not know Dennis – he was one of our founder members and played a part in the shaping of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club. I met with him and his son Phil a few months ago to discuss his part in the club in its early days. It is a real shame that he could not see the Hunter Cup race this Sunday as he had planned. He will be sorely missed.
