Howard Holland

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Howard Holland on September 5th.

Howard is credited with the current joint highest break of all time in the CDSA, with his 143 in 1981.

Given his lifelong passion for snooker and the many friends he made during his time on the table, Howard’s daughters wanted to inform the snooker community of his passing.

Howard’s funeral will take place on
Thursday September 14th at Glyntaff Crematorium, Pontypridd at 12.45pm
