It is with enormous sadness that the CSMBA committee announce the passing of our former chairman Mr Gerry Russell.
Gerry passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday 22nd November 2023 surrounded by his immediate family and friends
Gerry was a former member of Sutton St Edmund SMBC and also played as an associate member at Walpole Highway.
He represented the County team on a number of occasions and was also the previous Captain of what is now referred to as the county seniors team.
For some years Gerry held the position of Chairman of the CSMBA and, to save the association money, kindly held committee meetings in the barn at the rear of his home.
The CSMBA committee send its deepest condolences to Gerry’s wife Janet who, being a fine bowler herself, gave up the sport to look after Gerry as he bravely battled his long yet personal fight against serious illness.
The committee extends its condolences to Gerry’s family, friends and the many fellow bowlers, both past and present, that knew him.
To our former chairman, may he rest now in peace.
