It is with much regret that we have learnt of the death of Jim Proctor on 7th November. Jim played most of his Yorkshire bridge at Scarborough where he had many successful partnerships and represented the county on numerous occasions. However, possibly locally and nationally he will be remembered as a senior tournament director. Jim was the longest serving member of the EBU Tournament Directors’ panel at the time of his retirement in 2016. He joined the panel in 1974, and had held the top rank of National Tournament Director for several decades. At the Summer Meeting in 2016 he was made a Life Member of the EBU for his services. We extend our sympathy to Jim’s partner Kevin and all his friends around the county and country .
His funeral service is at Woodlands crematorium, Scarborough on Thursday 23 November at 2.00 pm if you wish to attend and pay your respects in memory of him.
