|It is with regret that I advise the passing of Mr. Jim Kilby on 4th February 2018.
Jim was one of the stalwarts of the Gloucester Billiards & Snooker League in the eighties and attained the honour, of being our President.
Jim’s game was Billiards more so than snooker and he reigned supreme in the early to mid-eighties before retiring from competitions.
Jim played at the Walls Social Club when he moved to Gloucester from the Forest of Dean, in the late Seventies.
He moved to the Gloucester Conservative Club for the 1979/80 season where he set some memorable records.
His record stands at: OPEN Billiards Champion for 5 consecutive seasons 1980 to 85, Divisional Champion 1979 to 82 and 1983 to 85.
He also won the inaugural “Handicap” Competition introduced in the 1980 to 81 season and so became the first person to win the OPEN and HANDICAP competitions in the same season. He won it again in the 1984/85 season, to do the double for the second time.
The Gloucester Conservative Club also won the “Padmore” Shield, team competition, for four consecutive seasons from 1983 to 87.
Jim being Chairman of the Gloucester Conservative Club, helped keep the enthusiasm going on the green baize and no doubt, the upkeep when necessary.
A current, highly ranked billiard member of the GBSL advised, that he met Jim for the first time, when he moved to Gloucester in 1988 and joined the Conservative Club. It was clear that Jim was a highly respected billiards player in the Gloucestershire area. His knowledge of the game was second to none and he did his best to impart his knowledge, of his game, to others, in particular the professional aspect.
Jim’s advice, no doubt, assisted in that player’s ability today.
Jim also played for Gloucester in the Intertown League versus Stroud and Cheltenham. He was part of the 1979/80 team that brought the “Hooper” Shield back to Gloucester, having not won it since the 1967/68 season.
Jim’s achievements speak for themselves and our thanks go to Jim, for being part of the GBSL.
Our condolences go to Jim’s family. He was a true gentleman and will be sadly missed. K.W
His funeral will be held on 23 February 2018 at 1:00 at Gloucester Crematorium.
