Sad News - Jeff Dunn

Jeff Dunn of Judges

It is my sad duty to advise you of the death of Jeff Dunn of Judges quiz team.

Judges have been playing in the Liverpool Quiz League since 1983 (forty years!) without a name change. Jeff joined in their second season meaning he played for at least 38 years.

He has become well known to neighbouring quiz teams through playing on Thursday nights at St Austin’s friendly quizzes and latterly online. He has been a regular for Brian Thompson and Angela Doyle’s Wednesday night team in the OQL (Online Quiz League)

Last year Jeff was awarded the Citizen of Honour award by Liverpool City Council for the work that he did with young people and political awareness. The ceremony at the Town Hall was moving for the number of young people who cited him as an influence in their successful careers.

He will be sadly missed, may he rest in peace.
