John Leake

It is sad to advise that John Leake passed away on Friday 5th July in the Luton and Dunstable Hospital. He had been ill for some time but his condition deteriorated and he withdrew from all chess activities two years ago. John was an extremely able administrator and supported chess activity in and beyond the county for over 30 years.
His funeral is at 3.15 pm Friday 20th July at Vale Crematorium, Luton. https://www.stalbanschessclub.org.uk/.
