Alan Everard - Hutton & Shenfield 41 Club

Alan John Everard 23rd July 1944 - 23rd September 2020

It is with considerable and personal sadness that I report the passing of my good friend Alan Everard.

Alan died peacefully at home on 23rd September 2020 in the presence of his wife Julie and his sons Elliott and Matthew.

Alan joined Hutton & Shenfield Roundtable in the early 1970s and held various offices culminating in Chairman 1984/85. He joined Hutton & Shenfield 41 Club soon after and held Chairmanship there in 1997/98.

Alan was also a stalwart supporter of the Masonic movement. In 1989 he promoted and formed The West Essex Hospices Appeal donating regular funds to numerous Hospices in the region.

Alan was one of life’s gentlemen. A raconteur, sharp of wit and a thoroughly nice man somewhat pedantic at times but usually for the right reasons. You never had an empty glass in Alan's company.

His early life in the Romford area was shaped by his father, a well-respected Builders Merchant where Alan gained his business acumen. Following his education at Hornchurch Grammar School, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant and after working for several firms joined Clement Hoar Cummins as a Partner becoming Managing Partner, developing the firm and managing the changes imposed by increasing legislation.

A very loving couple, Alan and Julie embraced retirement, enjoyed a good standard of living, and were privileged to travel widely and experience the finer things in life including a delightful home in Little Waltham, Chelmsford and a holiday villa in Cyprus where they enjoyed entertaining their family and many friends.

Unable to attend the funeral service, due to current restrictions, members of Hutton & Shenfield 41 Club followed the cortège from Alan’s home to his final resting place at St. Martins Church Little Waltham.
