It is with much sadness we advise that beloved SLSA Life Member, Kevin Stanford OAM, passed away yesterday Sunday 27th May 2018.
Kevin was a founding member of the North Entrance SLSC in 1977, joining Shelly Beach SLSC in 1978 where he held the positions of President (1986-1993), Secretary, Register and Chief Instructor.
He continued to train and assess right up until recent years, having gained his Instructors Certificate in 1954 and his Examiners Certificate in 1985.
Kevin was also a highly regarded Surf Sports Official both locally and internationally, and was involved at the World Championships in Vancouver – Canada, Southport – Australia, Lubeck – Germany and the UK.
He was awarded his Surf Life Saving Australia 70 Years Long Service Medal in 2017; the only surf life saver from the Central Coast Branch to achieve this honour.
We would like to send out condolences to the Stanford family and friends.
