Western Suburbs Magpies are very sad to advise of the passing of one of the Club's long serving and well loved stalwarts, Charlie Tuxford, who passed away suddenly last Thursday at Carrington Nursing Home, just shy of his 91st birthday.
Charlie was a life long supporter and volunteer with Wests Magpies and Wests Tigers. He also volunteered with many charitable and sporting organisations, including the 2000 Olympics, White City Tennis, SIDS, Wests Magpies Golf Days and numerous other causes.
Charlie successfully coached numerous junior teams at East Campbelltown Eagles JRL and Campbelltown City JRL and was a Group 6 representative team Manager. He is a Life member of both JRL Clubs.
Charlie always believed if you are leading at halftime you should never be beaten, a point he discussed often with Tim Sheens and other Coaches in many dressing room discussions, over the years.
Charlie's wife, Beula, survives him and continues to reside at Carrington.
His Funeral will take place on Friday January 7th at Leppington, with the service streamed from 12:30pm at the following link: https://williamrgroves.com.au/tuxford-charles-victor/
A grand old Wests Warrior!
Rest in Peace, Charlie!!
