Our Deepest Sympathy to the Roquette Family

Comments Off on Our Deepest Sympathy to the Roquette Family Uncategorized

We wish to send our deepest sympathy to the Roquette Family on the passing of their darling Samuel – a leading light in our 2008 Age Group who was due to accept his Award as 2019 Athlete of the Year in his Age Group on Sunday last.

Our thoughts are with the Roquette family who are instilled in all sections of Our Club as Senior Athletes, Juvenile Coaches and Juvenile Athletes including Dad: Benjamin, Mum: Louise (Kinlen), Sister: Abigail (former 2004 member) and Brother: Antoine (2006).

As a mark of respect to Samuel and his loving family there was a moments silence before the 2008 Age Group lead out the Turkey Trot on Sunday morning last in Carysfort Park.

May Samuel Rest in Peace.
