We mourn the passing of Greg Upton

27 Jul

We are saddened by the passing of Greg Upton on Sunday 22 July.  Greg was only 63.  He started his bowling career with New Norfolk Bowls Club playing in Men’s Division 1 on Saturdays and winning several club championships.  During these years Greg worked at Boyer. About 18 years ago Greg and his wife moved to Midway Point and he worked as a Supervisor of Cleaning at Wrest Point. Sadly his wife passed away two years ago and since then Greg retired and was the sole carer of his 3 grandchildren. After 20 years out of Bowls, Greg took his bowls back out last Pennant Season at our Club.  He was looking forward to playing again this year. Sadly this wasn’t to be. We all send our condolences to his family.
