The ARA is sad to report the news that Ted Dyos of Staines Boat Club passed away on Saturday 18th July after a short illness.
Ted was a member of the club for over 50 years and was made an honorary member in recognition of his service. He was a very successful cox before moving into coaching, indeed, many of SBC’s seniors started their rowing careers being coached as boys by Ted.
Just last week Ted was runner-up in the Exceptional Service to Sport Award at the Spelthorne Sports Awards and he picked up a similar award at the Runnymede Sports Awards earlier in the year.
The funeral will be held this coming Friday, 24th July at 3pm at Hanworth Crematorium, with a wake at the Swan Hotel afterwards, to which all are welcome. The family have requested no flowers but instead would appreciate any donations made to Staines Boat Club Junior Squad.
