Vale – Donald ‘Don’ William TROUNCE

It is with heavy hearts we wish to advise of the recent passing of Don Trounce.

Don was one of the key figures in establishing many sporting clubs within the Illawong/Menai district.

And was involved in the foundation of the Illawong Baseball Club out of the initial sporting group.

He also acted as club treasurer in 1984, 1985, 1994, 1995 and 1996; and also as club secretary in 1987 and 1988.

In 1994, both Don and Joan were awarded Life Membership of the Illawong Baseball Club.

Also in 1994, Don was awarded the Club’s President’s Award.

 

Don is survived by his wife Joan of 57 years.

Loved father of Alleyne and Anthony, and Pa of Erin, Tom, Brock and brother of Robert.

 

Our thoughts are with the Trounce family at this time.
