When the stadium was closed in September 1940, he transferred to Wimbledon stadium where he was Publicity Manager, Judge and Steward.
His sudden death came as a shock to friends who had thought he was making a good recovery from his stroke of the previous week. Tom Cushing endeared himself to everyone with whom he came in contact not only because of his keen interest in all the work he undertook but because he had the human friendly approach and the desire to help other.
