Cliff Williams *Funeral Arrangements*

3 weeks ago By www.manchesterrugby.co.uk

It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that Cliff Williams passed away on 29th October, at home with his Family around him.

Cliff had been unwell for some time with multiple health challenges and went downhill rapidly over the last two to three weeks culminating eventually in heart failure.

Cliff was a great servant of the Club both on the field, and off it as a regular, quietly in the background, sponsor, though in fairness 'quietly' was not his forte in everything else.
He was a great Tourist both with the Hawks Vets side all over Europe and travelling to International games with his cronies.

When he finished playing Vets Rugby he took up golf, bringing his outstanding tackling style to driving the golf ball. All he ever really wanted to do was 'smash it'!

He will be sorely missed.

FUNERAL ARRANGENENTS:

Date - Wednesday 14th November @ 12-15 - at the Rowan Chapel, Stockport Crematorium.

Reception following the funeral will be at Hazel Grove Golf Club.

Cliff's wife, Tonia, has requested that wherever possible MRC Club ties be worn.
