Roy Skelton

Roy Skelton – A life in Worthing bridge remembered


 

Those who were able to attend Roy’s funeral on 13 March will have been impressed by the very large number of bridge players wishing to pay their respects. Undoubtedly this reflected the huge respect and affection in which Roy was held by all who knew him throughout the bridge world. From a Worthing Bridge Club perspective, Roy’s commitment to the success of the club was unmatched over four decades from the time in the 1970s when he and a handful of others provided the loan finance which enabled the Club to buy its own premises leading to him becoming one of the original Trustees of the Club, through his very many years of service on the management committee, including four years as Chairman, to his appointment as President of the club in 2016. Roy’s very many years of service led to him becoming one of the very few to have been awarded honorary membership status at the Club.

 

The onset of Parkinson’s curtailed his play at congress level, Roy ending as a Premier National Master. Those who played with and against him would attest not only to the accuracy of his bidding and play but also and more importantly to his unfailing politeness and consideration for others. During his time as Chairman, his commitment to the code of conduct ‘Best behaviour in bridge’ was marked by an ideal combination of firmness and fairness. Those who knew him less well might glean from this that he was a bit boring. Far from it; Roy’s wry sense of humour and rapier like wit was a regular feature of his time at Worthing which those who worked with him will readily recognise.

 

Following his retirement from committee business in 2011, Roy remained very supportive of succeeding committees and was always happy to provide advice and guidance as required. It was therefore no surprise that the present committee decided unanimously to appoint Roy as President of the Club in succession to Alan Jeffery. During the final years of his life, Parkinson’s disease presented Roy with another major challenge, a challenge which he rose to with great fortitude and great good humour, continuing to play his beloved game of bridge every week until only very shortly before his passing. We shall all miss him greatly.
