Vale Robert (Alan) Cole

It was with much sadness that we informed members of the passing of Alan Cole on Monday 14th December 2020.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gai and their families and friends.

As most would be aware, Alan battled illness over a long period of time but always remained optimistic and treated each day as precious and with dogged determination.

Alan joined us at Aspley Bowls Club in September 2008 and quickly stepped forward to assist in any way that he could. With his teaching background and self-confidence, he stood out as a natural leader and organiser.

During his time at the club, he served on the Men’s Division Committee as Social Games Co-Ordinator and Selector until his health and regular hospital stays restricted him.

I am sure, we can all look around the club and picture Alan busily doing one job or another, organising games, working behind the bar, marking greens, repairing or constructing something.

People like Alan are the heart and soul of our club and we will miss him greatly.

Rest in Peace now friend.
