Tan Houghton Obituary, Death – Statement from the Organization: Yesterday, ABC enjoyed a fantastic celebration of the life and commitment to the club by Tan Houghton. Before the start of the summer pennant season, he departed away unexpectedly the previous year (far too early). We hosted a tournament for novelty bowls as a postseason event, in which at least 90% of the club bowling members and friends took part.
Tan was a skilled bowler and served as the ABC club secretary for a number of years, making him a well-liked member of the organization. Tan was also highly involved as the Manager of Melbourne Bowls Centre over many years and was always very helpful in giving fantastic guidance to our bowlers.. Later on, Tan began working for a regional corporation called AESG, which is also a sponsor of ABC, in the capacity of a technical site inspector. Sadly, Tan went away far too soon after his illness.
We had a terrific carnival day with fancy dress, blind folded and opposite hand bowls and plenty of celebrations. The company was treated to a meal of lasagne that had been home-cooked.
The whole day was great. That would have been perfect for Tan!
Many thanks to all of our club’s kind sponsors, notably
