David Beaumont (1951-2012)

Passed away October 14th 2012

It is with deep regret that we advise that David passed away yesterday following a battle with cancer.

David will be missed by all the table tennis fraternity and our sympathy is extended to Glenys and the family. We also extend this to cover all of his friends within table tennis who knew him over his almost life-long involvement.

David was a Life Member of Table Tennis NSW, served as President and a Director for a number of years, this was a significant effort given that he managed this well from Gulgong in the Central West of NSW.

David was also a long serving Board Member of Table Tennis Australia and only recently stepped down as Vice President. David has left a long term legacy from his efforts on behalf of our game. He has been very involved in the development of youth and junior categories, often attending major national and international events representing either New South Wales or Australia.

As a player, David represented NSW at the highest levels, when selected for our State Open Teams in his younger days or in later years as a member of the State Veteran teams. David was also proud of his NSW country representation and always ensured he was part of a team competing at the Country Championships.

However his proudest moments were reserved for the efforts of his family. He was a complete family man who supported his children in all their efforts.

Table Tennis, at all levels, has lost a tremendous ambassador.

Deepest sympathy from pbsmick
