Vale St George Referees Life Member #59 John Mercer.
John passed away peacefully on Friday February 16th. He first joined our association in 1958, becoming a life member in 1977. He would go on to serve as president of St George Referees from 2005 – 2010, and again in 2012. He was also one of the inaugural inductees into the St George Referees Hall of Fame (member #9). John was an enduring presence at meetings, presentations, and social events, being a comforting constant, a reminder of the values that define our community of match officials. We’re indebted to John and are incredibly grateful for his years of service to St George Referees.
His funeral will be held:
Friday February 23rd
St. Michael’s Church, Hurstville
Wake to follow at St George Leagues Club (Red V Museum Room).
