Vale Michael Irwin
 
Illawong Revesby Workers Athletics is sad to report that our long time member and supporter, Michael Irwin, passed away on 18/6/2020 aged 91.
Michael was involved with and helped out both Revesby Workers' Little Athletics and Illawong Athletics' senior club for many years. He competed in our winter cross country events for many, many years and was always available to help out whenever he could. When he was finally unable to compete he would still attend every week to help out with timekeeping.
 
During the summer season, he helped out at Revesby Workers' LAC, where his grandchildren were members. He also officiated at Little Athletics' Zone, Region and State Championships.
 
Those who new Michael will remember him as a kind hearted, cheery gentleman who always had a joke to make people laugh.
 
A couple of years ago, Michael's health declined and he no longer was able to attend the activities that he loved, Little Athletics and cross country. Even though he wasn't present, people who knew him would ask about him and how he was going.
 
Michael's funeral will be held at Woronora Cemetery on Thursday, June 25, 2020.
