Parramatta Leagues Club mourns the passing of Foundation Member, Ron Collyer Membership Number #59 on 9 October 2021. He was 88 years young.
Ron was a remarkable man who embodied all that it is to be a Paramatta Eels fan.
Ron’s service to Parramatta Leagues Club was tremendous. What a debt of gratitude we owe to our Founding and Life Members. We stand on the shoulders of giants.
About Parra Leagues Foundation Members
In 1955, a committee was formed to establish a licensed premises now known as the Parramatta Leagues Club. For the application to be submitted and approved the committee needed 200 people to join as members. Those 200 people then became our Foundation Members. Their Parramatta Leagues Club Membership commenced in 1957. Construction of the Club commenced in February 1959 and the Clubs doors opened in August 1959.
Without the help of all our Foundation Members, Parramatta Leagues Club would not be what it is today.
We send our condolences to Ron Collyer’s family.
