Eddie Calver, an Old Cryptian for many years, passed away on Thursday 27 September in the Brunswick Nursing Home after a long illness, aged 86. He leaves his wife Ruth, four children, nine grand-children and three great grand-children. He had a brother John and another brother Brian who now lives in Torquay. All were former pupils of the Crypt School. Eddie enjoyed Rugby (he captained the Old Cryptians RFC) and also played golf.
The funeral has been arranged for Monday, 15th October at the parish church of Upton-St.-Leonards at 11.30 a.m. Afterwards all who knew Eddie are invited to the Bowden Hall Hotel for drinks, sandwiches, refreshments, etc. Ruth and his son and daughters have said that sombre dress is not required. Club ties and, in particular, Old Cryptian colours will be very much appreciated. No flowers, but donations to the Edward Jenner Clinic would be appreciated (via Ernest Cocks and Sons, Funeral Directors).
