Cape Town Cricket Club mourn loss of ‘larger than life’ Ian Lewis

Cape Town Cricket Club life member Ian Lewis has passed away.

Lewis died in the early hours of Sunday, 22 July 2018, after a brief battle with cancer. He was 75 years old.

“Cape Town Cricket Club extends its sincerest condolences to the Lewis family on the sudden passing of Ian ‘Beachie’ Lewis – a life member who dedicated his lengthy and remarkable playing career and extensive personal time to the club,” read a statement from the club.

“Most recently, his dedicated management of the bar and more was attended to selflessly and efficiently, in a manner that no recognition or gratitude can do justice.

“Ian was a larger-than-life character and stalwart of the club, who epitomised the noble qualities required to sustain club sport and create the resulting ethos.

“Condolences to his wife Eileen, twin daughters Kim and Carey, son Grant, sons-in-law Allan and Henk, daughter in-law Anne – and seven grandchildren.”

    Very sad to hear of the passing of Ian.He was my senior as an articled clerk at Hands and Shore in last late 60’s.
    Ian went on to become a superb keeper at UCT who had a very good side with a number of excellent Mauritian’s Du Pavillion,and Tostee being two of them.When the 1st team had a bye,Ian loved nothing more than playing striker for the 2nd’s.For his size he was exceptionally quick.
    With a young son playing football at Durbanville our paths crossed many times with his involvement with Meadowridge juniors.Fond memories.
    Condolences to his family.
