WELCOME TO QUEENSLAND VETERANS CRICKET

VALE – LEWIS DALE COOPER (May,1937 – April,2019)

Dear Colleagues,
It is my very sad duty to advise you of the passing of Lew Cooper OAM last night. He died peacefully surrounded by family members. I have already passed-on condolences to the family on behalf of QVC. Details of the funeral will be notified in due course.

Lew was our founding Patron and recently made our first Life Member. Here in QLD we are playing veterans cricket because of the vision, leadership and drive of Lew!! It is the end of an era in the history of Qld cricket not just veterans cricket. His passing will be deeply felt by many of us who had the privilege of being one of ‘ Lew’s Boys’ from primary school days right through our cricket careers. He touched and assisted many people on and off the field right across our State.

Details for Lew’s funeral as follows:
Date: Tue 23 Apr 2019
Time 11.00am
Venue: Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 369 Given Tce, Paddington
Wake: Queensland Cricketers Club (Vulture St side of the Gabba), starting at 1pm.
In lieu of flowers donations should be made to Lord’s Taverners QLD.

QVC will make a donation to Lord’s Taverners on behalf of members.

I would ask all captains and players to wear black arm bands and pause to remember Lew at the start of our next matches in the O50s & O60/70s regional competition over the next few weekends.

Rest in Peace Lew!

Regards
Keith Christiansen
QVC President
