David Sheppard (1929–2005)

Observer: Former bishop of Liverpool dies
David Sheppard, the former England cricket captain turned Bishop of Liverpool, died last night after a long struggle with cancer. Today would have been his 76th birthday.

I don't have much time for bishops, but David Sheppard was undoubtedly one of the better ones—and, unlike certain other churchmen I could mention, he did at least bother to reply to his correspondence.
