Brian Cheesmur 4 June 1938 – 14 July 2018

Sadly we have to report that Brian Cheesmur, former director of J.Cheesmur & Sons Ltd, died on Saturday 14th July 2018 at St Peters & St James Hospice after a short illness.

Brian, a successful businessman, pillar of the community, keen sportsman all his life and friend to many diverse groups of people, leaves behind Carol his wife of 54 years and his daughter who will miss him terribly. In his retirement he continued to pursue his sporting intuitions by taking up golf and was a member of both Lewes Golf Club and Mayfield Golfing Society. He was also a very keen and talented badminton player well into his late 70s and played in Barcombe, Ringmer as well as at St Marys in Lewes.

Everyone who knew him will without doubt miss this most charming gentleman.
