Vale: Alan Flint

Feb 1, 2017

Alan Flint, Leichhardt Rowing Club’s longest serving Treasurer passed away 25th January 2017.

He joined the Club in 1969 after a strong interest in Rugby Union.  Between 1972 and 1999 he served as Treasurer with fund raising through raffles, phone book deliveries etc, together with his simple hand written monthly reports personally presented at Monthly Committee Meetings.  His financial administration resulted in his Life Membership awarded in 1978.

On his retirement he moved from his family residence at Beverly Hills to Wamberal on the Central Coast.  In recent years, health issues resulted in his transfer to an Aged Care Facility in Erina, where Old Rower representatives, Ross Ullo and Tony Potter made their final visit only days before his passing.

Alan was a very private person and kept to himself:  He enjoyed the TV provided by the Leichhardt “Balcony Boyz” whilst in the facility, and will always be remembered for that magnificent smile and handshake he gave on farewells.


His funeral Service will be conducted at the East Chapel, Rookwood Cemetery on Monday, 6th February 2017, at 11.15am.
