Howard Spencer
Howard Spencer
It is with much sadness that we announce the death last night of Howard Spencer.
Howard played for many years for Halifax HC 1st team and was a solid full back back in the days when all hockey was 'friendly', and he was the current Halifax HC Club President.
Howard had also been heavily involved in the Yorkshire Hockey Umpires Association (and previously Yorkshire County Hockey Umpires Association), serving as Association Secretary from 1998 to 2006, and Association President from 1991-1993.
in recent years Howard would often be found on the touchline at Park Lane,watching Halifax Matches along with the late Bernard French and he too was a gentleman, so in a short space of time we have lost two great stalwarts of Halifax Hockey Club, and Yorkshire Hockey.
Our thoughts go out to Howard's family.
Howard's funeral to be held at Providence Chapel of Rest, Huddersfield Road, Elland, HX5 9AH on Friday 5th October at 1pm.
