Conwill Mathias Obituary, Tycroes Rugby Member has passed away - Death

Conwill Mathias Obituary, Death –  Conwill Mathias, or “Con” as he was affectionately referred to by those around him, passed away recently. It is with profound regret that we inform you of this news, which is offset by a tremendous feeling of pride. Con passed away on Tuesday, November 22nd, at the age of 92, and we would like to extend our sincerest condolences and sympathies to his family during this difficult time. Con was a member of his cherished Clwb Rygbi Tycroes RFC for his entire life. He played and captained on the field, served on the Committee, and ran the line for many years. In fact, he was never far from the Club when he was in the area and even broke his leg while running the line. Con was a loyal and active member. Although his daughters Angela, Helen, Christine, and Janet never played for Tycroes (or anywhere else for that matter because ladies rugby was not around when they were growing up), they have all been active in the Club in some form or another. His love and involvement with the Club has been passed down through the family.

Con’s grandsons John and David Ogden, along with Matthew and Dean Bromham, have graced the Cae Gelli field. The latter, having only recently hung up his boots, is now involved with the organization of the playing squad and is developing into a valuable Committee member. Helen is currently feeding the teams on Saturdays, and Con’s grandsons John and David Ogden have also played for Cae Gelli. The legend continues to live on! Con was known to always have that contagious smile on his face and a kind word for everyone he encountered. He enjoyed a good laugh, and what was even more impressive was that he was able to laugh at himself as well as others. Someone who, despite their small stature, has a personality and outlook that are larger than life, as well as a big heart, and who it has been a pleasure to know.

His funeral is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 9th. The funeral procession will leave his home in Pantyboblen, which is located on the Penygarn Road, at three o’clock in the afternoon. They will then go to his cherished Clwb Rygbi for one last goodbye before continuing on to the Llanelli Crematorium for the funeral at four. After we have said our final goodbyes, you are all welcome to return to Clwb Rygbi Tycroes to reflect on a wonderful life and, without a doubt, listen to some wonderful reminiscences of a long and fruitful life. Instead of sending flowers, the family has asked for contributions to be made toward the purchase of a memorial bench that will be placed on the sideline of the pitch at Tycroes RFC.
