The West Adelaide Football Club extends its condolences to the Childs family on the passing of Brian.
Brian played an active part in the West Adelaide Footballers Club for many years and was a proud and passionate supporter. He was a Committee Member for 34 years, 27 as Vice President and became a Life Governor in 1983. Life Membership was awarded in 1996. He also acted as General Manager for a short period of 6 months.
He formed many friendships and happy memories during his time at the club and it was a big part of his life. He was always keen to assist club members and players with land conveyancing and general legal advice about land related matters. He used his connections with the West Torrens Council to assist the club wherever possible, having been a ward councillor for 6 years.
He is survived by three children, Greg, Julie and Steve. His first wife Margaret passed away in 2000 and more recently his second wife Joyce in 2017.
Brian passed away peacefully in the Royal Adelaide Hospital on Thursday 26th July 2018 surrounded by his family.
For those wishing to pay last respects his funeral service will be held at St Aloysius Catholic Church, 68 Brooker Terrace, Richmond on Friday 3rd August 2018 at 10am.
