Vale Basil Fuller

Saturday, March 23, 2024 - 10:03 AM

The Subiaco Football Club is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our greatest ever non-player, with Basil Fuller passing late on Friday.

Basil had been involved at Subi since 1961.

Loved by everyone involved with the club, he continued to volunteer at the Lions until his dying days.

Our thoughts are with his wife Jennifer and the Fuller Family who have supported the club through thick and thin.

Basil was a legend of the Subiaco Football Club, he was an office holder for nearly 60 years and was the 1st paid employee of the club in 1966 as the Club Secretary, promoted from his 5 years already on the committee.

Although he left club employment in the late 70’s, he maintained an unbroken link around the club until he rejoined the committee in 1987 and served as a Director and Vice President until his death. Basil was awarded Life Membership, was an Inaugural SFC Diehard and also awarded Life Membership of both the WAFL and WAFC. He was awarded an OAM for services to sport.

He came to the club every day, cheerful and with unwavering support for anything Subiaco. He loved the Club and his passing leaves a massive void that can never be filled.

We remember his tireless work, his leadership organising countless raffles and club events and his humour, he was the face of the club for many members and supporters.

Put simply, Basil Fuller made a greater contribution over a longer time than anyone else – well played Basil.
