The Geelong Football Club is in mourning following the passing of long time VFL team manager Vic Fuller.
Vic was a constant at the club for close to 50 years. In addition to his VFL role, Vic was a daily presence at AFL training sessions and match days.
He passed away after collapsing during Monday’s AFL training at his second home, GMHBA Stadium.
Aged 79, Vic began working with the Cats little league team before progressing to various roles. He had been VFL team manager for over 35 years and had developed strong bonds with the many players that have represented the club.
Our immediate thoughts go to Vic’s family, his wife Nola, children Dean, Ian, Brett and Scott and his grandchildren.
Vic’s presence at the club was larger than life. He touched so many through his time at the club. Everyone that encountered him will have a story to tell from knowing Vic. He was honoured by the club with life membership, and AFL Victoria named him as the 2015 Alec Gillon award winner for his service.
Vic will be missed by us all. Football clubs are really about people. For close to 50 years Vic was one of those people that most outside the club didn’t know, but who meant so much to those involved every day.
Rest peacefully Vic.
