Sorry to hear the sad news of member Jim Oliver's passing.
What a loss to Boxing, he and his family have given a lifetime to the game, in every capacity. His contribution to the Finchley ABC, his guidance to son Spencer and to many of the top boxers at the club, has been immense, he will be greatly missed by so many.
The same can easily be said of The London Ex Boxers Association, where he has attended for many years, along with Dad Charlie, and Brother John, and his personal support for LEBA, has been nothing but rock solid.
Jimmy and John, were awarded a LEBA award for services to LEBA and Boxing, an award which everybody commented was was so richly deserved.
LEBA's thoughts and sincere condolences are now with all the Oliver family and close friends for their very sad loss. May he now Rest in Peace.
