  11. Rest In Peace Glenn, you will be missed by a huge number of people, including me, I only knew you for a relatively short time, but I could tell since I met you, that you were a great man. My condolences go out to Glenn’s family, and I hope you can all find peace with his passing. It came as a great shock to hear that he was gone, I just couldn’t believe it at all.

  19. A tribute to a Life Member we had the privilege of playing with us at East Warrnambool YCW CC back in 1976/77. He was a brilliant young Wicket Keeper/Batsmen. Glenn played in 2x A-Reserve premierships with us being back to back flags in 1987/88 and 1988/89. Glenn then went on to play A-Grade cricket with Nestles in 1989/90 which he played in multiple premierships. Glenn was the best wicket keeper seen at East Warrnambool YCW and even the WDCA. Glenn was a big help in getting the turf wicket at the Jones Oval which we still play on today. He later he moved to Russells Creek CC and was the main man behind Creek getting there Turf wicket at Jetty flat. All the clubs Glenn has been associated with, he has touched in his own special way.

    We are going to miss you out on your balcony watching over the club where it first started for you.

    Too one of our ‘DECORATIVE LIFE MEMBERS’ Glenn Kelson, it is with sadness we say R.I.P.

    To Sue ,Ricky, Brooke and all the Kelson Family we send our deepest of sympathy to you all.

  23. “He acted from honesty and for the general good. His life was gentle, and the elements mixed so well in him that nature might stand up and say to all the world, “This was a man.”

    Go gently brother.
