John McIntosh passed away peacefully on Saturday, 16th October.
John was a stalwart of the club. Everyone knows John for his prowess as a lawn bowler and as a WAFL and VFL footballer achieving runner-up in the Brownlow medal. What a lot of members don’t know was that he was totally committed to our bowling club and a strong advocate in linking us to the country bowling fraternity.
John spent a lot of his time at the club, not just playing, but working tirelessly in several positions to bring income to the club, make us more competitive and bring in a strong administrative process. His contributions were invaluable and we acknowledge him for all the numerous areas he added value to.
John was a Life Member and was Club Member of the Year in 2009.
The club extends its condolences to Gwenda and her family.
John will be sadly missed both on the green and in the clubhouse.
