It is with great personal regret that I have to inform you of the death of Les Rogers who I am sure most if not all of you would have known over the years. Les was heavily involved in Warwickshire Rugby for most of his life as a referee and committee member as well as being a member of several clubs.
I knew Les very well from his involvement with the County and Broadstreet. He travelled with Broadstreet on several of the tours I organised over the years including Canada, USA , Indonesia and Australia and refereed several of the games on these trips.
Please see details of the funeral arrangements below as sent to me by his son Mark.
May He Rest In Peace.
"It is with sadness that I am telling you about the sudden but peaceful passing of Les Rodgers on 1st August. I think most of you would have known him in one capacity or another around the clubs of Warwickshire.
For anyone that is interested the funeral will be at Canley Crematorium on 24th August at 12.15 and then onto Old Leamingtonians RFC for refreshments.
Club jerseys / apparel is more than welcomed but a theme of something red is also being done. Family flowers only but donations to the Air Ambulance would be appreciated.
Please pass on these details as you see fit.
Regards Mark Rodgers (son)"
