Obituaries -January 2022

Peter List

Peter List in 1986
The Club was sad to hear of the recent death of Peter List age 91. Peter was a founder member of the Stowupland Club in 1959 and represented the Club in the Stowmarket and District Table Tennis League for many years, playing for Stowupland Skylarks and Stowupland ‘B’. He helped with coaching the juniors at Stowupland and was a member of the Club and League committees until the League ended and the Stowupland and Stowmarket Clubs merged in the 1990’s. Several of our current Club members will remember Peter well.

Simon Doney

The Club was also sad to hear of the death,  on December 7th, 2021, of Simon Doney, at the young age of 49.
Many remember Simon’s warm good nature (and tricky spin) in Monday morning sessions at St. Peter’s Hall.
   Other commitments prevented his continuation on Mondays, while some of us would occasionally catch a brief word with him on a Friday evening on his way to play badminton at Stowupland. We missed him at table tennis.
Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out to his family.
