Vale Cleve Wood

#1 Post by little arrows » Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:31 pm

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I wish to inform you all that Cleve Wood, who most of his friends knew as Shrek, passed away over the weekend. I was notified by txt message a short while ago, from a good friend and there is no further information on Hinterland Field Archers Facebook page.
He was a larger than life character and will be sadly missed around many Trad shoots.

RIP my friend.

I have lost a Brother in Cleve Wood, Old Mate Shrek, one of the hardest, toughest Bastards I have ever met. A Man with a quick wit, always ready to laugh, an unequaled generosity of Spirit, the gift of kindness, unrivaled compassion, truly the Salt of the Earth.

In my grief, the love of his life, Margaret and their wonderful family are foremost in my thought's. It been my privilege to call you my Friend. I love you Mate
