Tribute paid to club patron and 'legend'

Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club secretary Mr Peter Springett has paid tribute to the club's patron, Mr Wal Rainbow, who died at the age of 95 last Wednesday, October 6.

"Wal passed away peacefully in a nursing home in Kempsey.

"Wal and his wife Shirley, aged 96, had been together since they were 16 years of age and were still very much in love with each other.

"Wal was very influential in the formation and running of Zone 15 Bowls Central Coast and was made a Life Member of Bowls Central Coast Zone 15 on August 17, 2017."

He is pictured (left) being presented with his Life Membership by current Zone 15 secretary and treasurer Doug Rose.

"Wal was also a much-loved legend at Umina Beach Bowling Club, where he is the current Club Patron.

"The funeral service will be held at Walker's Funeral Home in Kempsey on Friday, October 15.

"The funeral will be live streamed."

Mr Springett described Mr Rainbow as "a lovely man and a true legend".
