we are sorry to announce the death, after a short illness, of Geoff “Syd” Thompson in Exeter yesterday. Syd was a committed 1st XV prop in the late fifties and early sixties, and became a VP of the club. Even after Syd moved down to Exeter many years ago, he would often make the long trek back to visit his many friends at The Gables.
Syd’s funeral will be held at 14:00hrs on 10 October. It will take place at Exeter Cathedral.
If anyone would like to get in touch with his family, Syd’s eldest daughter, Liz, can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
