David Price

 

David Price 1949-2022

 

It is with much sorrow that we have to announce that David died peacefully at home on Monday morning, 21st March, following a short fight with cancer.

We have been privileged to have David as a member of our Club for many years and he will be sadly missed by the Club and by the wider bridge community.

His many achievements were recently recognised by the English Bridge Union on presentation of the 2022 EBU Diamond Award. The tribute from Andrew Robson written on that occasion illustrates his expertise as a defender.

There is announcement on the EBU website, and you can also see his biography and his 2014 Top Table interview.

David and Jenny at the Palace 2015
David and Jenny at the Palace 2015

David was lucky enough to be invited to a Palace Garden Party. Whilst they are not told why they were invited, they can only assume it is a result of David's Bridge.

They had a fab time, the organisation was first class, the tea was superb and the sun shone. 

They send huge thanks to the Countess of Euston, the Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk for the invitation
