Former national sports coordinator at the Institute of Sports (INSPORTS), Bruce McFarlane, who recently passed away after a long battle with heart complications, will be laid to rest at Dovecot tomorrow following a funeral service at the Webster Memorial at 10 a.m.
McFarlane, who was 49 years old, joined the state-owned sport agency in 2002 as a sport officer, and would later progress up the ranks.
Throughout this period, McFarlane demonstrated a high passion for sport and the development of sport, particularly at the grass roots, which was in keeping with the agency's policy.
A hard worker and one who was always dedicated to the cause even when the odds were heavily stacked against him, Bruce's never-say-die attitude made him a man for all seasons.
"He will be sorely missed," said Ian Andrews, INSPORTS administrative director and close friend, shortly after McFarlane's passing. "He never gave up, always willing and able, and went above and beyond the call of duty."
