Jimmy Ellis RIP - Funeral Arrangements Confirmed

5 years ago By Paul Skelly

It is with great sadness that we announce that Jimmy passed away suddenly and peacefully. The following message is from his daughter, Maureen.

To all my Dad's friends at Beckenham Rugby Club,

It is with much sadness that my dad, Jimmy Ellis, passed away yesterday, 3rd April 2013. I know he had some great friends at the club many of which he had known for many years and he has taken many fond memories with him of a great gang.

I hope everyone will raise many a glass to a great dad, man and rugby player whose second, and sometimes first home was always and will always be Beckenham Rugby Club.

For those who wish to come, the Funeral is confirmed for 19th April 2013, Dad will be leaving Beckenham Rugby Club for his last tour at 13-15 sharp. He will be going to Beckenham Crematorium (Elmers End) for 13-30. Then after we will be celebrating his life back at the rugby club.

I would like the day to be a celebration of dad's life, so would be happy for anyone wishing to come to be in rugby shirts or bright clothing, but if you do want to wear traditional funeral colours then please feel free to.
Thank you all

Maureen Ellis
