The ACT Rugby Community lost a great rugby man this week when Stephen Whitelam passed away on Sunday night.
Stephen was an inaugural Foundation Member of the Brumbies and was a board member of the Gungahlin Eagles Rugby Club.
His company, Brooks Marchant, have been a club sponsor for over 30 years and a corporate supporter of the Brumbies since inception.
Stephen, a Daramalan Old Boy, and his father Terry have been regulars at Eagles’ and Brumbies games, events and corporate and community activities for many years, often giving generously to support fundraising drives and charitable causes.
Above all else Stephen was a wonderful father, husband and great friend to many.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Caroline and children, Samantha and Jack.
Rest in Peace Stephen - you will be sadly missed by all who knew you.
Stephen's funeral will be held on Friday 18 January at 11am at Holy Trinity Church, Curtin.
