Lawrie Izzard

Omar Group is sad to announce the passing, on Sunday 11th February 2018, of Lawrie Izzard, former Group Managing Director of Omar Homes Limited. 

When Lawrie joined Omar in November 1993 he brought stability to the business and during his time with the company, played a large part in its expansion with the acquisition of Hudson Windows, Brentmere Leisure and Woodbury, in effect creating the Omar Group in the 1990’s. Lawrie retired from his full-time position as Group Managing Director in April 2004 but continued to serve on the board as Non-Executive Director until 2008.

Both Lawrie and his wife Molly were great golfers and as members of Thetford Golf Club, they both became Captain of the men’s and ladies teams respectively. Many of you will remember with fondness the Omar Golf Day they introduced.

Lawrie was well respected within the company and throughout the industry and will be remembered with great affection for his strength, fairness and as the true gentleman he was.

Lawrie’s funeral will be held at the West Suffolk Crematorium on Friday 16th March at 11:00; our thoughts are with his wife Molly and son David at this sad time.
