Passing of John Farrant

It is with sadness to announce that John Farrant sadly passed away in the evening Tuesday 4th January at the age of 93 after a recent fall at his home last month when he fractured his shoulder and was admitted to hospital.

Unfortunately, he suffered an infection and then caught Covid whilst in hospital that resulted in his passing.

John will always be fondly remembered by all of us at Abbey Bowmen as the longest serving member of the club, (almost 40 years), and was shooting right up to the age of 90 when the attached photos were taken. Archery GB also posted an article about John as possibly one of the oldest active archers in Essex at that time.

I have now got confirmation of John Farrant's funeral

1.20pm on Tuesday 8th February at South Essex Crematorium. (delay is due to backlog at this time of year)

Refreshments afterward at the Huntsman & Hounds. Ockendon Road, Upminster RM14 2DN
