Passing of Old Dog Leroy Etherton

The club is very sad to inform you that Leigh (Leroy) Etherton passed away this week at the age of 54 after a long battle with cancer.

Leigh, known to all as Leroy, was a very popular member of our club.
He joined Wanneroo in 1978 and played for the club till the mid 80’s, before deciding to go back to his native New Zealand for a while.

Ultimately, when he decided to return to live in Perth permanently, he came back to Wanneroo and played out his career with the club.

Leroy is survived by his daughter Haani (aged 21) and his son William
(aged 11)

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family He will be sadly missed by all in the Dog House

The funeral will be held at Karrakatta Cemetery on Wednesday 29 July at 2.30pm. All welcome. This will be followed by a few beers at the Kingsley.
