In Memoriam – Dennis Hommel

posted in: News

Cambridge Football Club mourn the loss of D1 player Dennis Hommel, who sadly passed away on Friday 19th November 2021.

Dennis joined our club in 2012 and was a true club man from the start, generously volunteering his time when and where he could. He received the D1 “Best & Fairest” award more times than anyone else in the team, a testament to how well liked and respected he was by his fellow team mates.

Dennis collapsed during an indoor football game in February 2020 and was later diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour. Although he could not play anymore, he remained a loyal supporter of Cambridge Football Club and came out to watch his D1 team and our first team’s home games when he could.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Dennis’ wife Christine and children Christopher & Michelle.

A private family service for Dennis was held Friday 26th November 2021.
