It is with great sadness that I have to announce the tragic and untimely death of 1st XI player Jeremy “Jez” Suter following emergency surgery on a previously undiagnosed tumour aged just 23.
Jeremy has been a member of the club throughout his junior years and in recent years had become a regular member of the 1st XI as well as giving back his time as a coach on Sunday mornings. He was clearly a talented batsman and wicket-keeper but most valuably a great club man who would have played for the club for a number of years to come; moreover Jeremy was one of the most thoughtful, considerate and "giving" people whom I have ever known. Jeremy never had a bad word to say about anyone nor did I ever hear a bad word said about him. Jeremy was quite simply a wonderful human being and the world is diminished by his departure from it. The club will miss him immeasurably.
Our thoughts are with Hugh, Margot & all of their family at this difficult time.
A memorial service will be held at St Mary's Church, Beaconsfield, 12:00 Friday 24th October to commemorate Jeremy's life; all who would wish to attend will be more than welcome.
The family have chosen two charities to support, both of which reflect Jeremy's wishes and interests.
Food for the Hungry and Bucks Youth Cricket Trust
Details of both the service and how to donate will be published in this Friday's Telegraph a copy of which notice I will also circulate.
