Happy Birthday

The VBSA Board and Members send their best wishes to Ron Stecum on attaining the remarkable age of 98 on Friday 12th July.  Just one simple cannon away from another century break, which he has made in both snooker and billiards (how many can say that?)
 

VBSA President from 1978 to 1982 and again from 1986 to 1988, Ron was also a delegate to the ABSC for many years as well as being President of the Australian Billiards and Snooker Referees.  He travelled overseas on many occasions to Referee at world championships.  He was also awarded a special Emeritus certificate in 2009 for services to the Referee community and Billiards& Snooker in general.

Ron would be one of the few people still around who could say they played against Walter Lindrum.  It didn’t go well, as you can imagine, but they were at the exhibition match to see Walter, not Ron.  Try telling Ron that though.

Ron now lives in a nursing home in Cranbourne, only a few kilometres from his devoted wife, Val, and loves nothing more than reminiscing about the good old days and his exploits in them.  He was very chuffed recently to have George Taylor and Don Richter come to visit.

Happy Birthday, Ron.  We’ll do this again in 2 years’ time, and this time we’ll expect some cake!!
