It is with much sadness that we write to inform you that Robert (Bob) France passed away this morning at 7.30am.
Bob had been battling with illness for many years.
He will be remembered in your own thoughts, but for most as the genial giant that we had the pleasure to be served by from behind the bar. Many will have played hockey with Bob at Wakefield HC and Slazenger HC.
We will post the funeral details to the Slazenger Hockey Club website when we know more
Our deepest condolences go out to Mavis and the France family for their loss.
