Terry Cole 1937-2021

It is a great sadness to announce the death of Terry Cole at the age of 84. Terry passed away peacefully on Saturday 31st July in Greenacres Care Home in Meltham with his family by his side.

Terry was a former club captain of HRUFC and honorary life member of the club. He was one of the club’s real characters, noted for his unique wit and banter, a man whose sense of fun and joie de vivre brought pleasure to all who shared his company.


After his retirement at the end of a very successful career in the pharmaceutical industry Terry devoted much of his spare time to voluntary work at the club. He remained a loyal supporter of all our teams and was a regular at first team games right up until the pandemic put paid to the matches last season.

Deepest sympathy from all at HRUFC go to Terry’s wife Anne, his daughters Caroline and Suzanne and all his family.

Funeral details will be announced in due course.
