Farewell to Richard Gracey

We are saddened to share the news of the passing of Richard M K Gracey; Richard died peacefully on Tuesday December 3rd.

Richard was a great Old Tonbridgian, being a key member of the OT Cricketer Cup XI that won the trophy so many times in its formative years. He was also a fine Rackets player, especially in tandem with John Thompson and then Martin Smith. Further, Richard was headmaster of Hilden Grange, which supplied a large number of boys as one of Tonbridge's primary feeder prep schools.

Richard was a serial winner and the Rackets court during the 50s, 60s and early 70s.

Noel Bruce Cup 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959 & 1961 (with JR Thompson) 1969 – 1975 (with MGM Smith).
 
Amateur Doubles Champions (with MGM Smith) 1964, 1965, 1969, 1970 & 1971
