It is with great sadness that we have learned that Hugh Price passed away earlier today at the age of 94. Hugh had been in a care home for a couple of years with various illnesses, but died peacefully in his sleep with his niece and nephew at the bedside.
Hugh was associated with the Cardiff Chess Club for over 70 years and for most of that time was at the centre of chess life in the Cardiff area. He will be remembered with great affection by players, past and present, by the many juniors that he coached and their families, and by the wider chess community in Wales and beyond.
Hugh’s unfailing patience, kindness and generosity endeared him to all who knew him. He was the perfect gentleman and will be greatly missed. Cardiff Chess Club will commemorate Hugh in an appropriate way when restrictions are lifted.
