North Old Boys St. Patrick’s College Amateur Football Club is saddened at the passing of a champion bloke.
Paul Millett passed away on Sunday May 12th after a long illness.
Millsy had Huntington’s disease which is hereditary having previously claimed his mother and two sisters and had been unwell for more than ten years.
He married Christine and they have a son Lachlan who attends Year 9 at St Bernard’s.
He was good mates with Peter Kett, Paul McSweeney, Harry Callaghan, Mick Fennelly, Alan Baker, Anthony Furey, Eric Pearce, David Birrell, Phil Harvey and Chris Foley among others.
In 1982 he joined NOBS and played 135 games over ten years. He represented the Seniors on 34 occasions and played in the 1983 A Reserve Premiership side wearing number 14. He was most courageous and loved the wet conditions we often encountered at Brens Oval.
He had a mullet before it was fashionable, always had a smile, was a keen Richmond supporter and was a regular attendee at the Bouzy Rouge or wherever THE RUNNING BEARS were performing.
May he rest in peace.
