RIP John Fellows (26/01/2018)

Ron Bentley has recently heard from Keith Green of the passing of former member John Fellows earlier in the month. He was 99 years old.

John was a member of the club from the 1930's. Ron recalls him being a fine sprinter over 100/220 Yards but he also, like many of that era, ran all distances and turned out for the club on numerous occasions over all surfaces. He was one of the first from the club to try out field events and is noted competing in the Discus contest held at the 1938 Tipton Sports on Victoria Park.

His love of sport was a constant through his life and rugby and running were to meet when he helped in the formation of Dudley Kingswinford Running Club based at the RFC.

His funeral will take place at Gornal Wood Crematorium, on Thursday the 8th of February 2018 at 11.40 am.

His family are requesting no flowers and that any donations towards McMillan Nurses be forwarded to the Funeral Directors J.R. Jones & Co , Five Ways House, Lake Street, Gornal, Dudley. DY2. 7DJ.
