Thankfully I can look back on my old Westside Football copies and WAFL history books to remember some of his fine work over many years.

One can only hope The West Coastralian newspaper pays some sort of tribute to Easty - after all he sold a few papers for them with his sports writing in the day
Haven't seen much of that just yet sadly

Well said by others. Sad to lose another stalwart from the golden era of WA footy. He made a great contribution to reporting and recording WA footy.

Now that the competition has been reduced to a fraud where a peon like Cam Shepherd is remembered as a back to back premiership coach in the same breath as Ken Armstrong and John Todd its probably not a bad time to be toddling off.

Sad loss

One of the great WA Footy Journos, from the golden era of WAFL

Remember he was in the Football Register every year as editor I think, and a great writer in the papers.
