The Cleveland Chess Association regrets to announce the passing of long time member, Richard Moore. Our condolences and best wishes to Richard’s family at this sad time.
Dave Baillie of Redcar Chess club has asked me to post the following announcement:-
It is with great sadness that Redcar Chess Club report the passing of our dear friend Richard Moore. Richard’s membership of Redcar Chess Club stretches back over 70 years. He has also played an active role in Cleveland Chess and the ECF where he held the post of Fund Trustee for many years. A true gentleman in every sense of the word, Richard had many friends at every level of the game and set the standard for competence and diligence in every office he held. Richard played chess to a high standard but always placed the game itself and respect for his opponent above winning or losing. A service for Richard will take place at St Bede’s Chapel, Middlesbrough Crematorium at 1.00pm on Friday 1st November followed by a reception at Acklam Hall.
