The Passing of Bryan Sanger

It is with much sadness we record the passing of our loyal club member, Bryan ‘Shorty’ Sanger.

‘Shorty’ was a much-loved and passionate past player and lifelong supporter of Tukapa.

'Shorty' went through the Junior grades in the late 50s - early 60s and in 1964 he was in the Taranaki Championship-winning Open Junior team and continued through in that team until 1966 when he was Vice Captain. He also played some games for the Taranaki Championship-winning Senior Team in 1966.

We extend our sincere condolences to the Sanger family and request members attend his funeral at the Tukapa clubrooms on Wednesday 10 January 2024 at 1:00pm.

Friends and members are invited to the Paritutu Bowling Club after the service to enjoy some fellowship and reflect on 'Shorty's' life.
