I am very sorry to have to tell you that Louis Haxell has passed away late last night. Caryl has just called me with this very sad news, and that, despite his short stay in Watford General to treat a bout of pneumonia, and showing signs of improvement, he contracted Covid and was unable to overcome this awful virus.
Louie or Lou as many of us knew him, has been a longstanding Vice President of our club, and he was a real clubman, with him and his family supporting our club in many ways over the years, and he will be sorely missed by all of us who knew him during his time with us at the cricket club and at Porters Park.
We send our sincere condolences to Caryl, Richard, Sue and family at this very difficult time, and Caryl has said that, under the current restrictions, the funeral will clearly need to be a private ceremony.
Rest in peace, Louie.
