It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of Ron ‘Speed’ Harding OAM this morning, aged 84.
Speed joined Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club 67 years ago, obtaining his Bronze Medallion in 1953. During this time has trained, assessed and coached hundreds of quality surf lifesavers.
Awarded Life Membership at Yeppoon SLSC, Wide Bay Capricorn Branch, Surf Life Saving Queensland and Surf Life Saving Australia, there was not a moment that Speed would pass up to spend time at his beloved club, where he aptly had the deck named after him.
At Speed’s request a private service will be held with family before a public memorial service is held for the broader Lifesaving Family. Details for this public service will be communicated once confirmed.
