The Late Willie Matthew
Written by Norman White   
Thursday, 30 August 2018
Willie passed away on Tuesday 28th August after a long illness at the age of 94.  A one time vice-president of the Club, Willie was associated with Kirkcaldy RFC for over 40 years.  It was at the time son Graham first appeared in the 1st XV that Willie started attending games and soon became deeply involved  with the club.   Forever generous on a personal level, he transformed the Club's attitude to fund raising.  His Tuesday and Thursday night wine raffles quickly raised the costs of many items of playing equipment, especially strips.  Whenever something in the clubhouse had to be repaired or replaced, Willie would see that it was done in quick time, frequently at his own expense.

Willie was well known not just in the rugby club but in the town generally, especially for his charitable work and his business activities.  For many years he worked in the family coal merchants business before in later life acquiring funeral directors A & J Crosbie, transforming it into Crosbie Matthew with its modernised premises in Nicol Street. For some years Crosbie Matthew were regular match sponsors with Willie hosting convivial pre-game lunches.

Pre-deceased by his wife Ena last year,  Willie is survived by his three children Andrew, Graham and Sheila, grandchildren and great children to whom the Club extends its deepest sympathy.
