Lenny Coxall Obituary

July 14, 2019
It is with great sadness that we inform members of the death of Lenny Coxall who was a long standing member of the Club. Lenny and his wife, Beryl, joined the club in the 1960s and remained members until a few years ago. 
Lenny was one of life's great characters and will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Beryl and his family.
