Richard Evans (1948-1954)


Howard Allen writes to inform us of the sad news that Richard Evans (1948-1954) has died on 10th September 2021.

I regret to inform you of the death of a very dear friend – Richard Evans. We came together in 1947 when Richard arrived in The Oval from Anglo Egyptian Sudan where his father was a railway engineer.

Richard was a member of 1st XV and 1st XI (1954) also a superb swimmer for Whitefield House. He played for many years for OCRFC prior to his move to Chelmsford in mid 1970s.

He served for 4 years in RAF-technical branch. (1954-1958) before embarking on a career in electronic marketing.

I have conveyed to Sandra and family condolences of OCC. Richard was a stalwart member for many years, but had been resident in a care home in the latter part of his life.
