Vice-President's tribute to John Hoyle
HDVBA Vice-President Allan Dobson, has provided this tribute to John Hoyle.
‘A true gentleman’, ‘A great bowler’, ‘Kind, friendly and hard-working’, the various tributes go on and on. Many of our members will never know of his total and utter commitment to the HDVBA, especially with regard to his meticulous planning and preparation of the recent Golden Jubilee celebration event at Meltham.
The passing of our President has left a huge void. He will be sadly missed by all who had the privilege to know him.
John, I salute you, and, on behalf of the members of the management committee, I thank you for your companionship and your unceasing and unselfish efforts.
Without any trace of irony, I add a final comment: ‘John Hoyle, a giant of a man.’
