George Witham (1959-65)


George Witham died in March 2006 aged just 57 following a long fight against Motor Neurone Disease.  To the end, George bore his illness with great courage and dignity which would come as no surprise to those of us who knew him well.

George was a popular and well known figure amongst the Old Uffs not least because of his major involvement in the two reunions that took place at South Hampstead Cricket club in 1995 and 2003.  George’s excellent planning skills and hard work ethic were the key factors in making both these occasions the great successes they were.

He also played for many years for the Old Uffs football club where he made his reputation on the field as a hard tackling defender and great team player.  Off the field he made many friends and those friendships have stood the test of time, lasting till now.  He will be sadly missed by all his many friends.

George leaves behind his wife Stella, son, Dino and daughter, Tara Clair, plus the grandchildren to whom he was devoted. Our thoughts are very much with them.

If anybody wishes to talk about George, please feel free to contact me.
