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.”
