The Nedlands family is deeply saddened to report the death of Life Member Martin Kavanagh. Martin played many games for Neddies, anchoring the scrum for our 3rd and 4th grades for some years in the 1980s. He went on to become an important administrator for the Club, serving as Secretary, Vice President and President, and was Patron during the early 2000s. Through his various mining business interests he was also a generous sponsor of Nedlands.
Martin leaves behind his wife Val, daughter Sally and son Terry (also a Neddies 4th grade stalwart) and six grandchildren, all of whom he adored. He will be very sadly missed by his family and many friends in the rugby and mining communities.
Information about the funeral will be published on the Club’s social media pages when it becomes available.
