He was taken to Basildon Hospital where he was placed in an induced coma after surgery to fit two stents but sadly, he did not recover.

Harry’s death has come just two days before he was due to receive two awards at the club’s annual trophy presentation evening. He was skip of the winning team in the Ted Hasler Trophy triples competition and he was runner-up in the Junior Plate.

Brentwood men’s captain Fred Wasmuth first met him when he played for the now defunct King George’s Bowling Club in Romford. Fred said:”Harry certainly turned out to be not only a good player for us but was well liked by everyone at the club. We will miss him, that’s for sure.”

Funeral details are not yet known.
