Hockey suffers loss with death of
England's Tony White
?
?? The International Hockey Family has lost one of its most enthusiastic and effective administrators with the recent death of Tony White. Mr. White died in the Royal Marsden Hospital in Surrey on 25th January, his 64th birthday, from a massive stroke. He passed away peacefully according to his wife, Jean.

Tony White was an ardent promoter of hockey development and had served as secretary of both the International Hockey Federation and European Hockey Federation's Development Committees. A former international umpire, Tony served as vice- president of the (English) Hockey Association since 1988.

His most notable achievement, perhaps, was his most recent. Mr. White served as chairman of the steering committee that orchestrated the merger of the Hockey Association, the All England Women's Hockey Association and the England Mixed Hockey Association. He would have become the first chairman of the new English Hockey Association on June 1st of this year, which most certainly would have been a satisfying culmination of 50 years of working in and enjoying hockey.

Funeral services were held February 1, and an additional memorial service will be scheduled for a later date. Jean White asks that anyone wishing to make a positive gesture in memory of Tony do so with a donation to The Royal Marsden Hospital, Lymphoma Research Fund, Downs Road, Sutton Surrey, SM2 5PT, England.
