It is with heartfelt sadness that SKOBFC Community remembers Kevin Croagh AO who passed away during the week. Anyone growing up around SKOB and the eastern suburbs of Melbourne knows one of Kevin’s four daughters or four sons – Max and Peter are past players of SKOB and Sophie Straford, Eliza Straford and Brit Croagh are current Saints players. Kevin and his wife Katherine have impacted many lives in the SKC and SKOB community and our condolences and thoughts are with them through this difficult time. If we are to be judged by the character of those we leave behind, then Kevin is one of the greats and the world is a better place for having him here.
Loving and devoted husband of Katherine (Kate) and much loved and proud father of Peter, Tim, Mary Ann, Anthony (Max), Paul, Genevieve, Angela and Jacinta. Admired father-in-law of Sally, Jude, Simon Banting, Joanne, Emma, John Cullity and Tim Straford and loved Papa of Tom and Brittany Croagh, Stephanie and Rosh Julian and Olivia Croagh, Bridget Croagh and Paul Kingsford, Timothy and William Croagh, Sam, Jono, Sarah and Ben Banting, Brittany, Eleanor and Patrick Croagh, Alexandra and James Croagh, Hamish, Francesca, Edwina and Anna Cullity, Sophie, Eliza and Caroline Straford.
