Lovell Williams Obituary, Death – I am writing to inform members of the demise of Chartres Stuart Lovell Williams on Tuesday, December 6th, 2022. It is with a great deal of regret that I write this letter. He was known as Charlie at ICC, and he became a member of our club in the 1950s. Charlie was an extremely well-liked member who had been here for a very long time. Charlie was a member of all of our elevens and participated in matches on Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays, Tour XIs, and during the week during league play. He was the opening bowler for all elevens for many years, claiming one hundred wickets in a season at least seven times, was the captain of the Saturday 3rd XI for several seasons, and scored a well-deserved century towards the end of his playing days with Martin Allum’s able assistance. He also captained the Saturday 3rd XI for several seasons.
A day that will be remembered and celebrated for a very long time!! During his eight decades as a member of our club, Charlie was a dedicated contributor who served in a variety of capacities. Soon after he joined the committee, he quickly took on multiple duties, culminating in his election as Bar Chairman, followed by Honorary Secretary, and finally Club Chairman. After he retired from football, he ran for and was elected to the position of Vice President. Charlie maintained his work for our club and was eventually chosen to the position of Honorary Life Member and Trustee, which is the greatest honor bestowed by our organization.
It is exceedingly challenging for me to picture life without Charlie. He contributed in a significant way to the ongoing prosperity of the Ickenham Cricket Club throughout his entire career. Even after his passing, he will continue to play a significant role in our Club. In the present moment, preparations are being made for Charlie’s funeral arrangements. When the specifics have been ironed out, another announcement will be made available here. Our thoughts, regrets, and sympathies go out to Sue, Pete, Jo, and the rest of his family, as well as the many long-time friends he had made at his cherished Ickenham Cricket Club.
