Vic, who passed away on 22nd October 2018, was a great enthusiast for the game of Bridge. He played almost every day of the week and was still playing recently, at the age of 95 years. He had many friends and partners in the Bridge world who will remember him as a player who was always good-natured and courteous, with a good sense of humour. “A true gent” who will be greatly missed.
