Oliver ScaifePublished on Monday 7th November 2016
Sadly, we have been notified that Oliver Scaife passed away at St Michael's Hospice in the early hours of Thursday 3 November.
Oliver was a long serving member of the HDTL committee, running the increasingly successful HDTL tournament every year, as well as being a member and player at Harrogate Racquets Club.
Our thoughts are with Oliver's family and his many friends and colleagues at this very sad time.
Kate, Oliver's wife, has said "Oly's funeral will be held at Christ Church on the Stray at 12 noon on Friday 18th November. Everyone is welcomed so if you could spread the word it would be very much appreciated. It is family flowers only, donations in memory of Oly can be made for St Michael's Hospice and MacMillan Cancer Support. Oly passed away very peacefully during the early hours of Thursday 3rd November."
