  11. A dedicated farmer who loved the land he worked on, and a very powerful anchor man for the Koonwarra Pussycats but l don’t think it helped his knees and hips in later years. Condolences to his family, especially his wife Alice who worked so hard on the farm with John. Geoff & Helen Hewson, Sam & Brenda Tumino, Barbara Sutton,Vince Interlandi,Rod & Sue Harding and all the crew from the November “ back to school “ Poowong ( or is that Pooright ?) primary school.
