Duane Smith

  18 December 2012   Jeff Bell   Club News
 

It is with great sadness that we advise the sudden death late last week of club member Duane Smith. Duane was an ex junior and returned to the club several years ago where he was closely associated with The Dreamers and supported many of our club functions. He was also a passionate supporter of West Tigers and was nearly always seen in a Tigers shirt! He is the son of Gail and Ross (Gail passed away only two years ago and the Gail Smith Memorial trophy is now played for between Petone and Napier City Rovers), step son of Sue Pickering and is the brother of Tracey, Liam and Jamie Smith. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the entire Smith family and all friends and team mates of Duane. He had a heart of gold and will be greatly missed.

 

There will be a small service for Duane held at the clubrooms today, Wednesday 19th December, starting at 2pm. You are all welcome to attend, share a memory and a laugh and enjoy a beverage in honour of Duane.
