Carl Spencer, 1941-2023

OEGS PresidentUncategorized

We are very sorry to report the sad news that fellow OEGS member Carl Spencer died recently.  Carl was best known as an extremely accomplished jazz musician and the leader of Spencer’s Washboard Kings which later became known as Spencer’s Nighthawks.  We shall of course remember him for his exploits on the golf course.  He supported many OEGS events over the years and regularly played for our Cyril Gray team from 1993 to his last appearance in 2011.
