Keen let­ter writer missed

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Mal Hughes, Waikiki

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.
