Club News

Ebb Tide members, family and friends,

It is with overwhelming sadness that I write to inform you that our beloved Jack Fleming passed away Sunday evening.  Jack and his dear wife, June, were in a single-car accident last night.  Although not yet confirmed, it appears that Jack had a massive heart attack in the car before the accident.  June was driving and the car went into a telephone pole as she tried to stir Jack.  Jack was pronounced dead at the scene.  June is badly bruised and thankfully suffered no serious injuries.  As one can imagine, she is in a state of shock though.

I know that the news of Jack’s passing will come as a terrible shock to all of you as it has me.  I will write more after we have had some time to deal with the initial shock of losing such a great team-mate, friend and mentor.  Please keep June and their family in your thoughts and prayers at this truly difficult time, as well as each other.

Stay strong,

Shane Muldrew
President, Ebb Tide RFC
