Joe Moxham

Date: 02 March 2024

It is with great sadness that PGRFC announces the passing of Joe Moxham on 29th February.

Joe was a longstanding member, supporter and volunteer at Hoppers and will be deeply missed by all his Hoppers’ family. Joe played an active role in keeping the club running smoothly and took great pride in maintaining our outdoor space. His planters by the main entrance and on the terrace area were resplendent!  Joe was a fixture on match-days and always took the time to catch-up and share the craic. He was genuine, warm and welcoming to all, personifying what Hoppers is all about. He will be sorely missed.

On behalf of all Hoppers’ members, supporters and staff, we send deepest sympathies to Karen, Tom, Katherine, Helen, Sarah, Rachel and all Joe’s extended family.
