John Ryan 1936 - 2017

It is with great sadness that we share with our members that John Ryan has passed away. John was a highly respected member of Woodville with many years of service.

John started playing with the club in 1953 and played a total of 251 games including 70 'A' grade games.

His involvement with the committee included 5 years as Secretary from 1963 to 1967.

As club coach for seasons 1965 to 1975/76 and 1986/87 he inspired many players to improve their games to high standards culminating in two  'A' grade' premierships and quite a few players who represented the club at State and Australian level.

He was granted Life Membership of the club in 1967 and inducted into the Klaebe Club in 2001 in recognition of his services.

At the recent Capps Medal night hewas awarded Life Membership of the SABL for his contribution to baseball including coaching assistance to many state sides.

As a great bloke and with an enormous knowledge of the game he was respected throughout the baseball fraternity and will  be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Our sincere condolences go to Helen and Families.

In accordance with the families wishes a Private Service has been held.
