Vale: Warren Mavin … (25/6/1945 – 14/1/2023)

Warren Mavin passed away on Saturday from complications arising from lung cancer. Warren had been a member of Murwillumbah Vets for 20 plus years. It is very sad to lose a regular Veterans player and close friend to many of our Vets and other Club Members. Warren will be sadly missed, especially by his regular playing partners.

To his wife Michelle, and children, Josh and Jessie we pass on our deepest sympathies.

Rest In Peace

VALE … Ian Vidler

Posted on 17 September

It is with sadness that I write this post.

Ian Vidler has passed away after a battle with Cancer. Ian was a great human being, a loving husband and father and a friend to many a Veteran Golfer. He had a passion for golf.

He was a strong Leader, with a vision of amalgamating Veteran Golfers – Ladies and Men – under the one State Veteran Organisation. He was enthusiastic, passionate and enjoyed the camaraderie of other Veterans as he moved around the State to the many Weeks Of Golf with his wife Lyn.

To his wife Lyn, his family, the Executive Council of NSWVGA and the many Veteran Golfers who have met, played and had fun times with Ian, Murwillumbah Vets offer their sincere condolences.

Written on behalf of Murwillumbah Vets and Group 14 Veterans (NRVGA) of the Affiliated Clubs of NSWVGA …

A message from Lyn Vidler

I wish to advise that Ian passed away early this morning.

We will be having a private family cremation followed by ‘Vids Happy Hour’ on Monday 26th September from 2.30pm at the Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club (as per Ian’s wishes).  If you are attending it was Ian’s wish you wear bright colours.

I and the family would like to thank all of you who made Ian’s last months enjoyable by visiting, phoning, texting and praying.  The love and respect shown to him by such large numbers has been humbling.

As he would say, keep golfing, keep meeting new friends and enjoy their company on and off the courses. Please raise a glass to Ian at your next happy hour wherever you may be.

I hope to see lots of you at our Nambucca week of golf in July.
