David Hodgkiss, 71, has been a member of the board of directors of Lancashire for the past 22 years and has had a long history of health problems.
David Hodgkiss, who previously served as treasurer and vice chairman, took over as chairman of Lancashire in April 2017, and the renovation of Old Trafford Stadium over the past decade has changed his mind.
His family has confirmed the death of David Hodgkiss, who was killed by the Coronavirus.
