Maurice Freedman (1934-2017)

     It is with deep regret that to announce the passing of Maurice Freedman, who died peacefully on May 3rd, after a protracted illness, surrounded by his family.

    Maurice, an accountant by profession, and in the family business for almost 35 years, was one of those larger than life personalities that, once you met him, you could never forget.  His generosity and dedication to friends and family alike was second to none.  You could always rely on Maurice to do all in his power to help and advise you, especially in matters to do with politics and bridge!

     Maurice’s contribution to bridge in North-West London, Middlesex, and Berks & Bucks was enormous.  Before the computer took over, he could match point and cross check at the speed of light and was rarely found to have made an error.  He was treasurer for the New Amersham Bridge Club for many years and played in their League of Eight with considerable, but not remarkable success.  He became a Life Master over 20 years ago when green points were much harder to come by than now!  He was so proud to have been chosen to represent his country in the very first friendly international between England and Holland.

     For many years he ran a charity bridge club in Golders Green and holidays in Sandbanks, Eilat , Cannes and Italy and had great followings in his ventures.

     His main claim to fame, however, was the bridge club he founded in North-West London, which in its heyday boasted as many as 50 tables every Wednesday and where the cakes and biscuits were always home made by his adoring wife, Sheila!

     Results were announced on a recorded message on the telephone, ending with the famous line ‘and there was one other pair’!

     Maurice never forgot a face or a name and always welcomed every single person to the club.  He will be sadly missed by his many friends and bridge partners.

    He is survived by his wife, Sheila, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
