[from the ECCA website] It is with great sadness that we have to report the recent passing of Bill Thorncroft of Essex Roads CC whom many will remember as an organiser, timekeeper, official and President and committee member of the ECCA. He was admitted into hospital in mid-December and died on Wednesday 23rd January.
The following link “An Appreciation of Bill Thorncroft” is to a PDF file written by another ECCA President, Dick Spanton, also sadly no longer with us. The document was produced for Bill’s 90th birthday and should be seen as such but it really sums up just what Bill achieved in his life.
Bill Thorncroft’s funeral will be Thursday 21 February at 12.30pm at Bentley Crematorium, Ongar Road, Brentwood, Essex CM15 9RZ. No flowers but donations in Bill’s name to the Royal British Legion, a charity close to his heart, are welcome.
