DAVID "DAI" PRITCHARD, born in Cwmgors, Neath Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom, on Feb 17 1907 to Thomas Pritchard & Margaret Bowen. He played as prop forward for the Colliery team and Curwen Stars and he also became an International Rugby Referee. In 1927 he became the chairman for Cwmgors Rugby Football Club, and was chairman until the season of 1981-1982. He became the longest serving chairman in Welsh Rugby history. Dai suffered from Alzheimer's and died of a heart attack on Apr 15 1986 in Glamorgan, Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom.

IVY IONA PRITCHARD [THOMAS], who's parents where Tom Thomas and Mary Diane Jones, I have very little information of, but she died on Oct 27 1984 and was burried Nov 2 1984.

David "Dai" Pritchard married Ivy Iona Thomas in 1934 in Ponterdawe, Wales, United Kingdom. They had 2 children:
Living (m) Pritchard in 1937
Jeffrey Thomas Pritchard in 1942

The family lived for many years in 76 Lower Colbren Road, Gwaun Cae Gurwen, Neath Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom. I believe the house was sold when Iona died.
