Farewell Graham

Shooters, Graham’s wife Arna, family and friends gathered at 500yds during the Warrnambool Marathon to send down a parting shot for Graham Dyson.

Geoff Youl & Geoff Grenfell spoke about Graham’s contribution to shooting and his role in securing and developing this new Warrnambool range.

At the end of the short service Graham’s Grandchildren launched a huge bunch of balloons. Warrnambool’s weather didn’t disappoint, and as is often the case the wind was blowing strongly and they soon disappeared from sight.

Graham represented Victoria and Australia in both Target Rifle & Match rifle. He was one of Australia’s best coaches. He fought a long, hard battle with cancer, but managed to continue as a Coach of the Victorian Veteran’s and Match rifle teams until quite recently.

Graham also served a number of terms as a VRA Councillor. In fact he had just come out of retirement and been re-elected to Council when he passed away.

He will be greatly missed.
