Keen letter writer missed
Vale Richard Lever.
Richard was, on numerous occasions, a contributor of letters to the local newspapers.
He died on December 29 after a short illness.
His mind was still strong but his 95-year-old body failed him.
Earlier in the year, he lost his 92-year-old wife, Valmia. They had been married for 72 years.
Dick and Val were dedicated members of Rockingham Bowling Club for a period of about 30 years.
Both welcomed any new members and players and took them under their wings. I was one of those fortunate people.
Dick was still playing a good game of bowls until October.
Dick, you will be missed by letter readers and many friends.
You didn’t make the century, but you gave it a damn good try.
