The club is sad to report the death of one its members, Brian Howard, who passed away on 28th June. Brian was involved in an accident on 18th June whilst riding his bike and tragically died from his injuries.
Brian was a keen cyclist and has been a member of Essex Roads for two years. Brian is survived by his wife Julie Howard and two sons aged 11 and 14 from a previous marriage.
His funeral (burial) will take place on Wednesday 19th July at 2pm Herongate Wood Woodland Cemetery, Billericay Road, Brentwood, CM13 3SE. His wife has expressed her wishes for this service to be a celebration of his life and members who intend to pay their respects can wear ERCC tops as a mark of respect and this would be appreciated by the family.
Julie has also requested that only immediate members of the family are to send flowers, but would appreciate everyone else making donations to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Service who where incredible at the scene of Brian’s accident. Therefore the club has set up a justgiving page in Brian’s memory: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ercc-brianhoward to support this charity which will give all ERCC members and anyone else who knew him, regardless of how well they knew Brian, the chance to make a donation and leave words of condolence for family members to take comfort from now and in the future.
