    Paul R Maxfield passed away on Saturday 19th, September, 2020. He was 77.


Paul was born on February 20, 1943, in Douglas on the Isle of Man. He moved to London to further his education, before embarking on a career in advertising and marketing. This spanned both agency and client side, working on brands including Mattesson's (Mmmm), Wall's ice cream, and Dr Pepper.  He also lectured in advertising and marketing at the London College of Communication, part of the University of the Arts.

In 1971 Paul married Pru. They have two children, Stephen and Helen. 

Paul loved all things sport, especially rugby and golf.  Avid supporter, touch judge, past president and stalwart of Bishop's Stortford Rugby Club for nearly fifty years.  The club remained his major propellant to get well, continue to contribute the club's planned centenary celebrations, and be there for the start of the socially distanced season. We're convinced he'll be cheering on Stortford's 1st XV (plus all other teams and sections of the club) from above, forever more!

The funeral service will be at Great Chesterford Crematorium, on Friday 9th October, 2020, at 2pm. The family will be there to welcome friends and relatives.  A weblink will be available for all those who can't attend in person.
